More Bone Marrow Drives!

We are pleased to announce that there will be two more bone marrow drives next Saturday, April 26th! One will be held in school district 103 (Lincolnshire), and the other one will be in Wheeling. Please see the updated Marrow Drives page for more information.

Note: the Lincolnshire drive will also be a blood drive, so if you are also interested in donating blood, you can kill two birds with one stone! Ava has had 3 hemoglobin and 4 platelet transfusions so far. Your blood donation can help pay it forward to those donors who gave Ava the gift of life. (Sorry, this drive is not able to accommodate platelet donation. Please see the LifeSource website to find donor centers that are equipped to collect platelets).

If you or your friend(s) weren't able to attend a drive during our Bone Marrow Blitz weekend and haven't gotten around to ordering a kit online, please come out to one of these drives on the 26th! If you think of anyone else you can share this information with to help spread the word, we thank you in advance for doing so.
