YPAL says
Wondering if you could “Be The Match” for Rebecca Weis (Past YPAL President)? Come get your cheek swabbed at any of the following bone marrow donor drives.

February 25, 10AM-2PM at St. Agnes Church (1920 Newburg Rd)
Please stop by at any time during this event. Registration for this event is not mandatory, but those registered will receive an automated reminder.

Rebecca is fighting a rare form of blood cancer called #BPDCN and she needs a bone marrow transplant. A bone marrow transplant requires finding a donor with similar genetic composition of the recipient.

We’ve teamed up with several great organization to host donor registration events. All it takes to sign up to the national marrow donor registry is a short consent form and cheek swab, which determines donor/recipient matches. We’ll have snacks and drinks at each of these drives. Those who sign up could be the cure for Rebecca or a patient fighting blood cancer.

Please share information about these drives on your Facebook page and through any other means you can. Thank you to Stites & Harbison, YPAL, Brown-Forman, Humana, and all of Rebecca’s friends and family for their support!
