On February 23rd the Knights of Columbus are hosting an organization called Be The Match. Be The Match facilitates bone marrow transplants for people with leukemia and lymphoma. Unfortunately every 3 minutes another person is diagnosed with one of these diseases and rarely is a family member found to be a viable match. Be The Match has a large bone marrow registry and they match people in need of transplants with compatible donors. They cover the cost of the procedure as well as the cost of travel, food, lodging, etc. of the donor. Entering the registry is as easy as a cheek swab and filling out some paperwork. Come to our event this Friday to enter the registry and to learn more about Be The Match. Anyone between the ages of 18 and 44 can register.
