About Get Swabbed- Bone Marrow Donor Registry

Wilkes colonel.doc

Get swabbed to be a life saver! We are recruiting you to get listed on the bone marrow registry. On September 20th from 10:00 am-5:00 pm in the Henry Student Center Student Lounge, you can be part of something amazing, learn more about being listed on the registry and the process of becoming a potential bone marrow donor. For children and adults fighting blood cancer, like leukemia, a bone marrow transplant can save their life. An astonishing 70% of all bone marrow transplant recipients use unrelated donors -- that donor could be you. We are partnering with DKMS, an organization which works to expand the bone marrow donor registry by recruiting bone marrow donors. DKMS is the largest bone marrow donor center in the world.
