One of Ava's cousins in Minnesota, Samantha, is hosting a bone marrow drive along with some peers through their high school's National Honors Society! While they are not old enough to donate marrow themselves, they want to make a difference in the lives of those impacted by blood cancers by hosting this drive, as they each have close friends or family battling such illnesses.
For those in the Twin Cities area, here is the info:
Date: Saturday, Feb 28th
Place: Wayzata Free Church
705 County Rd 101
Plymouth, MN 55447
Feel free to pass this info on to anyone in the area. For those on Facebook, there is also a Facebook page for the event. Financial donations to Be the Match can be made through the drive's fundraising page. Thanks!
