Bone Marrow Donor Drive
Main Lobby, Roswell Park Cancer Institute
Stop by the main lobby at Roswell Park Cancer Institute on Monday, February 11, 2013 between 4 p.m. - 6 p.m. for the "Be the Match" Bone Marrow Donor Drive.
Each year more than 30,000 children and adults will be diagnosed with diseases for which a bone marrow transplant is the only chance for cure. Only 30% will find a matching donor within their family. You can help share life by becoming a bone marrow or peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) donor.
Donors must meet the following criteria:
- Between 18-60 years of age
- No history of cancer, diabetes or heart problems
Donor screening is FREE at this drive. The cost is covered by the National Marrow Donor Program and Marrow Drive Rochester.
If you have any questions, or if you would like to volunteer, please call Terrie Carbone at 716-845-8011 or Michael Garbin of the National Marrow Donor Program at 1-888-298-6571 or visit www.marrow.org.
