Two bone marrow drives this weekend. Please stop by if you can!
The first is for Yara Totah, a 22 year old student at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. She was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma last year. Her family is sponsoring a bone marrow drive:
Saturday June 13th at San Mateo's Central Park 10am-4pm.
The other is for Jon Galinson, a dad of two in Berkeley. He was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) last year. He has been undergoing chemotherapy for the past seven months. Jon’s best hope for a cure is a stem cell transplant, and his family is searching for a match for him.
Sunday, June 14, from 1:00pm – 6pm at Congregation Netivot Shalom, 1316 University Avenue, Berkeley.
All you have to do is fill out a form and get your cheek swabbed with a Q-tip. Easy!
