HELP ALICE DONOVAN FIGHT LEUKEMIA
A bone marrow transplant is Alice’s best chance for a cure. Nobody in Alice’s family is a match, so the Donovans’ have arranged a bone marrow donor drive with “Be the Match” (http://www.bethematchfoundation.org/goto/hopeforalice) to help find a match on:
Saturday, January 4, 2014, 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Tarsier Room at O’Reilly Media
1005 Gravenstein Hwy. North, Sebastopol
The test to see if you are a match is a simple, quick, and painless cheek swab. And if you go on to donate, 75% of the time it is a nonsurgical outpatient procedure.
If you cannot come to the donor drive on January 4, you can also sign up online at http://join.bethematch.org/hopeforalice and ‘Be the Match’ will send you a simple kit to take your own swab that you can mail back in for testing.
Donors must be between the ages of 18 and 44 and in good health.
Please consider getting tested to ‘Be the Match’ for Alice!
