“Got Swabbed?”

December 7th, 2010 by jnedley

On Sunday, December 5, we volunteered for the “Got Swabbed?” Bone-Marrow Drive at The Mandel Jewish Community Center in Beachwood.

The drive was sponsored by Hillel at Ohio University, Let My People Know, and the Ohio University Jewish Life on Campus Alumni Association.

More than sixty new potential donors were added to the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation, which is an associate registry for The National Marrow Donor Program.  We got a chance to promote The Carter Nedley Foundation, also, and passed out more than a few of our new brochures and silicone bracelets.

Thanks to Rabbi Danielle Leshaw, Director, Hillel at Ohio University, and to students Hannah Giterman and Kara Leyser for letting us help.  And thanks to everyone who joined the registry — the need to expand the pool of potential donors is great, and your action showed your willingness to help.

If you were unable to attend “Get Swabbed?” but still would like to join the registry, we can help.  Please contact us.
