Free This Week & Next Only

thanksmom_landingpage1.jpg

Because of the 14 year-old in our church who was recently given a leukemia/lymphoma diagnosis, we are aware of the fact that, for the next two weeks it is free to join the bone marrow bank. It takes a simple mouth swab & they can even send the kit for it all in the mail. Normally, it would cost $50! Between May 7 & 21, 2007, you can go to www.marrow.org or call (888)862-7769 for info on how to get your free kit & put your type in the bank.

The family in need at our church is a multicultural family & I understand patients are more likely to match donors of the same racial & ethnic heritage. So we are personally seeking and praying for more Asian-Caucasian donors if anyone knows of any. This is a world-wide drive.

I don’t have a huge readership on my blog like some of you all do, so if any of you read this & would put the info on yours, that would be much appreciated. The kids & I are off to put posters up around the area today as are many in our church. If you live nearby (& you know who you are:) our church is having a drive on Friday, May 18th from 8am to 6pm. You can just go there & get swabbed.

Pass it on!
