WANTED: Hero for Sammy
Be a hero. Save a life.
Sammy is a 7 year old, Rochester kid, who was diagnosed recently with Aplastic Anemia. Today, his body is needing your help...and you just might be his hero!
The search is on for Sammy to receive a life saving bone marrow transplant. So far, no match has been found for him but a bone marrow drive is happening this Saturday! The hope is that this drive will help find a match for Sammy and many others that are currently in need of a bone marrow transplant.
BONE MARROW DRIVE IN ROCHESTER
- Saturday, November 18, 2017
- Calvary E-Free Church
5500 25th Ave Nw Rochester, MN
- Open to anyone ages 18-44
- Refreshments available and all who participate will receive a voucher for free Culver's custard.
A few months ago, I went through the bone marrow registry process with Be the Match. A package was sent to me in the mail, I took a few swabs on my cheek and then sealed everything up again. The entire thing takes less than 10 minutes and doesn't hurt at all. Your few minutes truly could save Sammy or another person who is waiting for bone marrow. Someone out there is the hero...and this registry is how we find Sammy's.
If you cannot be there but still want to register, please use
this link...a package will be sent to you in the mail and Sammy will get some virtual high fives from the Be the Match team.
Sammy...keep being brave and strong! Praying a match comes your way and that this story will be sent and shared to just the right person for you.
