Bone marrow drive ‘Swab Party’ set for Nov. 2

Register to be a bone marrow donor during the “Delete Blood Cancer Bone Marrow Donor Registration Drive” from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, in the Grace Lutheran Church Family Life Center, 3020 Grace Church Road.
Thousands of patients with leukemia and other life-threatening diseases depend on finding matching donors who can save their life.
Even with a registry of millions, 6 out of 10 patients never receive the lifesaving transplant they need.
Donors of all ethnicities are needed. The first step is to register at this event and receive a swab inside of the cheeks to collect cells for tissues typing.
Donors must be between the ages of 18 and 55, must meet the medical eligibility guidelines and be willing to donate to any patient in need.
More information is available at deletebloodcancer.org
In addition, a Zumbathon will be held Saturday, also at Grace, in the Fellowship Hall, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. This event will benefit Make-A-Wish.
Call 704-857-1013 for more information or visit gracelutheransalisbury.com
The children of Grace will support the Blood and Bone Marrow Drive and the Zumbathon by participating in a “Fun Obstacle Course” and other games.
Register to donate blood at the CBCC e-donor site at carolinadonor.org for Grace Lutheran Church or call 704-857-9156.
For more information on the Delete Blood Cancer Bone Marrow “Swab Party” call the same number.
The Community Blood Center of the Carolinas is an independent locally managed, non-profit community blood center.
CBCC supplies blood to local hospitals throughout the surrounding areas.
