AMMC Hosts Bone Marrow Drive


Shay Willis March 18, 2013

Arkansas Methodist Medical Center is sponsoring a bone marrow drive in partnership with Be The Match on Thursday, April 25, 2013 from 11:00 am-6:00 pm in The Herget Atrium at Arkansas Methodist Medical Center. You have the power to save a life. Join. Give. Volunteer. Adults between the ages of 18-44, can join at the drive. Adults between the ages of 45-60 must join by going online at www.bethematch.org/join.

A simple cheek swab is all that is needed to determine if a person is eligible to save the life of someone in need of a marrow/stem cell transplant. The day of the drive, individuals will have to complete a consent form and give a swab of their cheek cells. If you are interested in participating in other ways, visit www.bethematchfoundation.org/goto/TeamParagould.
