This Sunday, September 30th, national foundation Be The Match is looking for volunteers for their bone marrow drive held at Envision Health Studio on the World of Kids Athletic Campus from 2:00-6:00pm. (Adjacent to World of Gymnastics and Cheer off of Bells Ferry Road.) This event has been created to help a local girl, Lindsay Simmons, in her fight against Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
The address for Envision Health Studio is:
101 North Victoria Court
Woodstock, GA 30189
Phone – 770-926-4180
The National Marrow Donor Program will be handling the Be The Match donor registry, which consists of a few medical questions and swabbing the inside of your cheek. It will be free to participate but this event will also be a fundraiser to help offset the costs of having each sample tested, which is $100 apiece. Coordinators of this event will have activities, t-shirts and a bake sale at the event as well. To get more information on bone marrow donation, view the National Marrow Donor Program’s website. If you aren’t able to make it to the event but would still like to donate, you can do so at the fundraising page here. For more information about the drive, please contact Sara Simmons at 678-758-4794.
