UC Berkeley Marrow Drive
Thursday, October 27, 2011
Stephens Room, MLK

When you join the Be the Match Registry, you can save a life. Every day, thousands of patients with leukemia and other life-threatening diseases hope for a marrow donor who can make their transplant possible. By simply stopping by the Marrow Drive on October 27 and swabbing your cheek to place yourself in the registry, you provide that hope for so many people. The process is extremely easy, quick, and pain-free, and will place you in the National Marrow Registry. 

People of diverse backgrounds are urgently needed, since patients are most likely to match someone of their own race or ethnicity. This drive is being held in honor of recent UC Berkeley graduate, Andrew Lee, who was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia this summer. For Andrew, and for all the patients out there searching everyday, we hope you can come stop by and register. It could be the most rewarding thing you ever do. For more information, please visit BeTheMatch.org.

If you would like to help out with the drive in any way, feel free to contact Marvin So (marvinso@berkeley.edu) or Florence Lee (florenceclee@gmail.com)!
