Be The Match (Bone Marrow Registry), Tuesday, April 18

To help connect more individuals with those in need, Wayne State University’s Division of Enrollment Management will host its first Be The Match bone marrow registry drive from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 18, 2017. Members of the campus community between the ages of 18 and 44 are invited to register to become a bone marrow donor. CFPCA will have an donation area in the student lounge on the second floor of Old Main.

The drive aims to add 1,000 Warriors to the Be The Match Registry, which connects marrow transplants from donors with patients who have leukemia, lymphoma, aplastic anemia and other potentially life-threatening blood cancers.

During the drive, there will be various locations across campus — including the Student Center, Undergraduate Library, the Welcome Center and more — where individuals can register. Potential donors are required to provide their contact information upon registering and a swab of the mouth is collected. Once an individual joins the registry, they will be contacted if they are a potential match for a patient in need. For more information, visit
