A big thank you 191 bone marrow registrants!

Bone marrow typing includes a simple cheek swab

The 21st annual Be The Match Bone Marrow Drive was quite the success yesterday, and we want to thank the 191 people that came out to our Dallas and Legacy hospitals and joined the Marrow Registry. That means potentially 191 children could receive a life-saving bone marrow or stem cell transplant.

For those of you who still want to get on the registry and be available to save a life, Children’s will pay for your online registration through Feb. 29. To send away for a free kit, visit http://marrow.org/Join/Join_Now/Join_Now.aspx and enter the coupon code “childrens.”

Many thanks again. We would love to hear from those of you that came out the drive yesterday and what made you want to join the registry.

    My fiancee was saved by a bone marrow transplant. It was a no-brainer for me to want to sign up. It took me 10 minutes to register to be a potential life saver. A little bit of information, a quick swab of the cheek, and I was all done. The process was quick and painless. Perhaps I will be the ONE to save a life? I hope I get the opportunity. Thank you Children's!

    Curtis, outstanding job! No one would know from the outset that you were just introduced to the Registry through this event. You have been a great advocate of the event, the Registry, and ultimately, the 5,000+ patients who will need an unrelated marrow donor this year.
