Memorial Hosts Bone Marrow Registry Drive
GULFPORT, Miss. — As part of National Donate Life month, Memorial Hospital will host Be The Match® Foundation Bone Marrow Registry Drive on Wednesday, April 30, 10 am – 2 pm, in the Main Atrium at Memorial Hospital (located just off the parking garage). A few simple cheek swabs (no needles) is all it takes to help others with life-threatening blood cancers, like leukemia and lymphoma—or other diseases! If you are between the ages of 18 and 44, joining the registry is free; if you are over the age of 44, a $100 fee will be required. To learn more, visit BeTheMatch.org or call Madonna Phillips, National Bone Marrow Donor Program, at (877) 601-1925, ext. 4350.
