  • Bone Marrow Drive

    DKMS Americas is holding a bone marrow donor drive in Chelsea next Saturday (May 27th, 2006) for Lauren, a 10 year old girl with leukemia. She has been sick for the past 7 years - a bone marrow transplant is her last chance for a cure. Lauren has not found a matching bone marrow donor out of the pool of 10 million people registered worldwide. Lauren is one example of the thousands of patients who are searching for a matching donor. More than 35,000 people could benefit from a bone marrow transplant each year, however only 10% of people actually receive one.

    The drive will be on May 27th from 11am-5pm at St. Paul's Church, 315 W 22nd St (between 8th and 9th Ave).
