May 17, 2010 – Blood and Bone Marrow Drive
A steady stream of supporters took time out of their day to join us on Monday at our first blood drive and bone marrow registry event. Held at the Holiday Inn Mansfield/Foxboro, this was a great success. In total, 91 people donated blood to Children’s Hospital for patients in need. Additionally, 126 people joined the Be The Match Marrow Registry (www.marrow.org). The process is simple. Just complete paperwork, get a cheek swab and then be on call potentially to save a life. The bone marrow donation process is simple and many donors are back to their normal routine in just a few days. Thanks to the many volunteers and sponsors who made this event possible. Hope to see you at our next drive!
