Swab To Save A Life

| No TrackBacks

Cotton SwabsAs the holiday season approaches are you looking for ways to help others? If so, the Be the Match Registry is always in need of people to add to their bone marrow registry.

Joining the registry could not be easier. Just confirm you meet basic registry guidelines, complete the online form and follow the instructions on the kit you receive in the mail. The kit includes cotton swabs and you collect your cheek cells on them.

Your information will go into the registry and if you're a genetic match to someone who needs bone marrow or cells you'll be contacted and asked to consider donating. There are a lot of myths about donating, so see the Be the Match Registry's Myths & Facts about Bone Marrow Donation and their Website as you consider adding yourself to the registry.
