One of my beloved Team in Training teammates is married to my husband’s highly esteemed former residency program director. Their daughter, a beautiful young woman named Stephanie, was very recently diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia. She is in need of a bone marrow transplant, and you can help by joining the Bone Marrow Registry and possibly being the match that will save her life.
If you are in the Santa Barbara area, SB Team in Training is hosting a bone marrow drive on Tuesday, July 24th from 4-9pm at Casa Blanca Restaurant. Here is the Facebook Event Page if you are interested: Facebook Event- Help Save Stephanie!
If you are not local, please visit www.marrow.org to find a bone marrow drive near you. Or, order a swab kit by mail, which is what Fred and I just did. All the information you need is at www.marrow.org
It’s a simple, painless cheek swab that can help save Stephanie’s life. I urge you to join the Bone Marrow Registry.
