In late October Be the Match is going to be helping with a drive for people to sign up to be on the bone marrow transplant registry. Currently, there is a need for help in volunteers who wish to explain what being on the registry is and to help with a fast cheek swab process.
Why?
Every hour more than six people die from a blood cancer. Be the Match is a non-profit organization that has a large registry of bone marrow donors. Since the patient’s family is not always a match for the patient, they are in need of someone else donating marrow to save their life.
When?
Tuesday, October 27th from 12-4 at UMR Commons
Wednesday, October 28th from 12-4 at 2nd floor of Galleria across from ZZ Pizza
Please sign-up on the volunteer google doc if you are able to help out at all!
