The Bone Marrow Registry Drive will take place on campus Thursday, February 21, and Friday, February 22. We are partnering with Be the Match, which connects patients with a donor match for a bone marrow transplant. Thousands of patients with blood cancers like leukemia, lymphoma, sickle cell, and other life-threatening diseases need a bone marrow transplant. You could be the one to save a life.

Participating in the bone marrow registry drive is easy. It entails completing a registration form to join the registry and providing a cheek swab DNA sampleLearn more about joining the registry and bone marrow donation.

Thursday, February 21, 4:30-8:30 p.m. (Markim Hall, Davis Court)

Friday, February 22, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. (Kagin Commons, Alexander G. Hill Ballroom)

Every four minutes, someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer – that's 360 people a day, 15 people every hour. Join the Be the Match Registry and you could be the cure a patient needs. Still have questions? Learn more here.
