Be The Match Stem Cell Donor Drive
Start Date: 3/2/2016Start Time: 10:30 AM
End Date: 3/2/2016End Time: 5:30 PM

Event Description
Every year, the lives of over 6,000 people in the United States are saved by complete strangers who donate their stem cells to a blood cancer patient through Be The Match, the nationwide organization that coordinates stem cell transplants every single day. Seventy percent of people who need a stem cell transplant do not have a matched donor in their families, so their cure has to come from someone on the registry. We will have a booth on campus all day on Wednesday to answer questions and for you to become a potential donor yourself so that maybe some day, you could be someone's cure. All it takes is a simple cheek swab!

There will be a presentation about Be The Match at 11:30 in the Hatfield Room, including short remarks from Bill Harper, an anthropology major and member of the Class of 2012 who received a stem cell transplant in 2011.
