Bone marrow transplants are needed for patients suffering from leukemia, aplastic anemia and other fatal diseases.
The initial procedure requires a small sample of blood to be drawn, after which the sample is entered into the National Registry. If a match is determined, the donor will be invited to provide bone marrow to a person whose survival depends on a bone marrow transplant.
There is no charge for registering; however, the cost of sampling blood and testing for matches is $68, for which donations are greatly appreciated.
Drive sponsors hope to raise the rest of the $35,000 necessary for testing through private and corporate donations. While registrants are encouraged to help defray costs, the priority is on registering as many people as possible.
To contribute to this program, please make checks out to the Karyn Research Fund and send to Allan and Debbie Tiedrich, 5 Kirkview Circle, Westfield, 07090.
