More information about our event and Be The Match :
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ DEM BONES ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Be the Match is a bone marrow/cord blood registry that not only helps people find matches, but helps donors with logistics and expenses so that they can feel free to donate marrow.
PLEASE IF YOU ARE BETWEEN 22 AND 44 AND IN GOOD HEALTH, JOIN THE BONE MARROW AND CORD BLOOD REGISTRY
It is easy, a simple swab in the cheek... go to the website for a test kit to send back.
If you are NOT in this age group or in good health, you can donate or volunteer from the following site as well. They need your dollars and time to coordinate and care for donors as well as those who are ill.
Be the one that can give a ride to the hospital or take a donor to lunch.. Be the one that can put a couple dollars (even $5.00 helps!) in the pot and get an instant email with 501 (c) information back.. go to the Website..
BE THE MATCH TO SAVE A LIFE!

It costs about $100 to add each new member to the Be The Match Registry. This is to cover the cost of tissue typing and storage, as well as materials and administrative expenses.
If you are age 18–44, Be The Match covers the cost to join for the people on SecondLife (during the campaign only! From October 26th through November 5) through funds provided in part by generous mission supporters.
If you are age 45–60, you will be required to make a $100 payment to cover the cost to join.
The reason: Younger donors, ages 18–44, produce more and higher-quality blood stem cells that lead to better transplant outcomes. Transplant physicians request younger donors more than 95 percent of the time. Requiring individuals ages 45–60 to cover their own cost to join helps Be The Match maintain the best registry for patients and make the best use of its resources.
