As a TNT alum, I still get emails weekly about fundraisers and other events taking place in the San Diego area… I wanted to pass the following information along from a message I received today.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is sponsoring a blood drive on Tuesday, March 24th (see below for more details).
The email also states:
We are also hosting a drive for the Bone Marrow Registry in conjunction with the Blood Drive. This is a totally non-invasive procedure; it just takes a cheek swab to register. You may call 619-400-8268 if you have any questions about the Bone Marrow Registry process.
You may qualify to be a marrow or blood stem cell donor if you:
• Are between the ages of 18 and 60
• Have no history of asthma, cancer, diabetes, neck or back problems, heart or circulatory disease
• Are within 20% of the ideal weight for your height and age set by the NMDP®
• Are willing to donate to anyone who needs a transplant
I’ve copied the location and registration information from the email and posted it below, if you able, please consider attending. If you are unable to attend this particular drive, please be aware that there are blood banks all over the United States and most accept walk-ins or have appointments available. Consider being a blood donor. Also, even if you cannot attend this drive, you can become a registered bone marrow donor in other ways as well.
