Get Swabbed! Help save a Life with Stem Cells or Bone Marrow
Coming up on Wed., Nov. 28 at Memorial University, there is a Get Swabbed event happening. It is sponsored by the One Match network. The idea is to build of database of potential stem cell or marrow donors, so that other who need a transplant will have a better chance of surviving their disease. It worked for me 10 years ago. The test involves taking 5 mouth swabs, and takes about 5 minutes. The samples will be analyzed, and the results stored, so that if you are a match for a patient, then you can donate your stem cells or marrow. See the poster below for more details.
