A Blood Drive and Bone Marrow Registry will be held on Tuesday, March 29, in the Great Hall, Levering Hall. Although slots for the Blood Drive are full, we encourage you to attend the Bone Marrow Registry from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Johns Hopkins has partnered with There Goes My Hero to bring this Bone Marrow Registry onsite. Every year 17,500 people will need a bone marrow or stem cell transplant to cure their blood cancer or disorder. This includes diseases such as sickle cell anemia and multiple myeloma, which disproportionately affect minorities. Only 30% of patients are able to find a matching donor in their family. The rest rely on the 33 million registered donors.
Please join in the effort to increase and diversify the registry and encourage others to join our efforts tomorrow, March 29.
To schedule a donation for our future Blood Drives, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App on the App Store or Google Play, or text BLOODAPP to 90999.
