Remember that July 16 is our bone marrow donor recruitment drive, in support of former member Michael Barker and others suffering from blood cancer. After a presentation by Gift of Life Marrow Registry, we’ll have on-site testing and registration—making it another excellent week to invite a young guest!
Participating in the registry is fast and painless. If you are between the ages of 18 and 45 and in general good health, you are eligible to be screened and join the worldwide registry for patients in need, at no cost. (Donors between 45 and 60 are simply asked to consider the cost to process their sample.) A simple swab from the inside of your cheek is all it takes to determine if you are a match.
We will be set up to perform cheek swabs right there at Rotary! Please pre-register here so we have enough kits. Thanks!
