    VP Rotary sponsors BE THE MATCH event


    Villa Park Rotary sponsors BE THE MATCH bone marrow event

    The Villa Park Rotary Club wants the Greater Orange Community to know that each person may have the power to save a life through the life saving power of bone marrow. You can give hope to patients with blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma, sickle cell and other life-threatening diseases. Thousands of cancer patients are waiting for a bone marrow transplant donor.

    The City of Hope has established a BE THE MATCH registry to match donors and patients. The Villa Park Rotary Club is partnering with the City of Hope in honor of a member with cancer who needed a bone marrow transplant and was able to find one using the registry. However, with more patients than donors, the Rotary Club is getting involved by sponsoring a BE THE MATCH DRIVE on Saturday May 12, 2012 in front of the Villa Park Ralphs/Civic Center from 10 am-1 pm.

    You can visit the drive to learn more on how simply giving a “swab” could potentially match you as a donor to save a life.
