UMC Event Calendar
Bone Marrow Donor Registry Panel Discussion
Thursday, April 24, 2014
Did you know that every 4 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer? For thousands of patients with leukemia or other blood diseases like sickle cell anemia, a marrow transplant is their only hope. Did you also know that you can be tested with a simple cheek swab and that 80% of the donations are through a non-surgical, outpatient procedure?
Come learn more about UMC's first upcoming Bone Marrow Donor Registry Drive today from 4:00 - 5:00 pm in Evergreen Hall Classroom. Panelists will discuss how leukemia and other blood cancers have affected them and how you can save a life.
