Be The Match bone marrow registry event Dec 2 and 3 on UNC campus

by Katy Jones — last modified Nov 25, 2013 03:26 PM
Give back this holiday season by registering with Be The Match on UNC’s campus on December 2 and 3, 2013.

Volunteers with Be The MatchSM will be in the Carolina Union West Lounge from 10 AM to 4 PM each day encouraging everyone to join the national bone marrow registry.  The registry event will be held in honor of Coach Sylvia Hatchell, who was recently released from UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center after her treatment for leukemia.

The Be The MatchSM Registry offers people the opportunity to help a patient by registering to be a potential donor of bone marrow or stem cells. Anyone between the ages of 18 and 60 who meets the health guidelines and is willing to donate to any patient in need may join the registry.
