Bone Marrow Donor Drive this Sunday, March 13 11:00am

St. Basil of Ostrog Serbian Orthodox Church
270 Ogden School Rd.
Kernersville, NC

Absolutely free, but donations welcome if you are so inclined.

This drive was organized by friends of a leukemia victim struggling for life, she needs donors of ex-Yugoslav origin, but people of any origin can come and register, and save someone else's friend out there somewhere. To become part of the donor registry, you fill out some forms and swab the insides of your cheek with a q-tip. That is it. If you are called to be a donor, there are several ways to donate bone marrow and all but the last is relatively un-invasive (last way is to extract bone marrow from the hip bone with a needle, easiest ways is like giving blood.) You can say no at anytime during the donating process. You will never be asked to pay anything as a donor. Here is more information on donating:
