Summary Sentence: Tech students, faculty and staff are invited to help save lives by joining the National Marrow Donor Registry.

Full Summary: Tech students, faculty and staff are invited to help save lives by joining the National Marrow Donor Registry.

Imagine you've been diagnosed with leukemia, a life threatening blood cancer. Now, imagine that your only hope for a cure is a marrow transplant, but there is not a matching donor in your family.  Your life lies in the hands of a complete stranger. This is the story of 70% of patients needing a marrow transplant, and you could be their only hope for a cure.

Please attend the Be The Match Registry Drive on Monday, November 13th between 11am-2pm on Tech Walkway, next to Tech Green. Paperwork, a cheek swab, and 15 minutes of your time are the only requirements for joining the National Marrow Donor Registry. Co-hosted by Love Your Melon, a funding partner of Be The Match.
