Event

CANCELLED - Bone Marrow Drive/ Be The Match
Presented by the Medical Ministry

Event has been CANCELLED - we are hoping to reschedule for a later dte.

"Do you have 5 minutes to save a life?  Please consider joining the Be the Match bone marrow/stem cell donor registry on 

Sunday May 31 from 8am to 2pm right here at Rock Church.  If you're between the ages of 18-44, in good health, and willing to donate to anybody in need, it's free to join and you only have to fill out a consent form and do a cheek swab.  You're then on the registry until you turn 61.  Bone marrow/stem cell transplants are used to treat a number of blood diseases including leukemia and lymphoma; for some patients, a marrow transplant is their best or only chance of a cure.  The Be the Match registry is currently almost 12 million strong but could always use more potential donors from all backgrounds to sign up to save lives.  Patients are most likely to match donors with similar ancestry.  For more information, please visit http://bethematch.org/ or http://a3mhope.org/
