Bone Marrow Registry Drive Info Meeting

Be-the-Match-R_RGB

Coming from Kirby Sokolow ’14:

Wesleyan AMSA will be holding a registration drive for the Be the Match Bone Marrow Registry November 8th! We will be holding a brief informational meeting on Tuesday, October 29th at 7:00 pm in Usdan
110. The meeting will discuss what it means to join the registry, the process of donating bone marrow, and information about volunteering at the drive!

Every four minutes, one person is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Seventy percent of all patients who need a transplant don’t have a matched donor in their family. Thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, sickle cell and other life-threatening diseases depend on the Be The Match Registry® to find a match to save their life.

This meeting is for anyone interested in getting involved as well as those who just want to learn more about the process!

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer but cannot attend the meeting, feel free to contact Kirby Sokolow at asokolow[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.

Date: Tuesday, October 29th
Time: 7 – 7:45 PM
Place: Usdan 110
Cost: Free!
