Free Bone Marrow Registry Thru Sept 22nd

My friend’s neice is 4 years old and already had a bone marrow transplant. She was born with an immune disorder that needed to be treated immediately. Although she wasn’t a match for anyone in her family, a stranger on the bone marrow donor registry was.

I have always wanted to register just in case I was ever a match for someone looking for bone marrow but the $50 price tag for testing was kind of steep. Every few months there is a donor drive where companies pay for testing costs and all the potential donor needs to do is provide cheek swabs and some background information.

Right now, NASCAR is sponsoring a new registrants to cover the costs. You don’t even need to go in person to fill out the forms, you can do it all online and through the mail.
