Bone marrow drive set for
Claire's Epsilon Omicron chapter of Kappa Delta Pi, an international
honor society in education, will sponsor a bone marrow drive from noon
to 7 p.m. May 8 in the Arrowhead Room of Davies Center.
During the drive, participants will register for the
National Marrow Donor Program. The registry helps doctors find donor
matches for patients in need. According to the National Donor Program,
patients of all racial and ethnic backgrounds are in urgent need of
donors to survive, and the best chance for a marrow match is between
people who share the same heritage.
To join, people must be between the ages of 18 and
60, be willing to donate to any patient in need, and meet the health
guidelines found at the National Marrow
Donor Web site. More
