Tomorrow a Blood and Marrow Drive will be held at Room 101 of the Construction Management Building next to the CEBA Building, on the LSU Campus from 9AM to 4PM.
Every pint of blood donated will go towards treating patients at M. D. Anderson. There are lots of people suffering from blood cancers just like Ann, and they can use every ounce of help you can give them. Some patients need as many as 10 or 15 transfusions a month while they are being treated with chemotherapy.
There are 35,000 more people every year diagnosed with diseases that can only be treated by a bone marrow transplant. 10 people will die each day due to a hematological cancer that could have been treated if they had found a donor. The people most effected by this are minorities who make up only about 20% of all available donors.
You can help save someones life.
If you are Asian, Mixed or a Minority please come by and get marrow typed. All it takes is a swab of your cheek and the time it takes to fill out a form. That small effort can give one of the thousands of people needlessly suffering a second chance at a beautiful life.
The CEBA building is located off of the Nicholson Extension on the LSU Campus.
