Bone marrow registry drive for local mom, if anyone wants to help:
SAVE A LIFE APPEAL
Today I am asking each of you to take the opportunity to help
Save the Life of a fellow Alumna 2007 - Nina Polvanich Louie.
She is in need of a bone marrow transplant. Nina was diagnosed
with Lymphoma in September and now has 2 months left. Nina has
not found a match yet and is rallying people to register
themselves. Many of us are actively spreading the news and
trying to stir up action. Details can be found at www.savenina.com
Things you can do:
* Sign up for the bone marrow registry personally to see if
you could be a match for Nina. There are links at www.savenina.com
412992> to learn more about being tested at a registry drive or
a simple at-home via a mail-in kit - it only takes 15 minutes and
a cheek swab! * A drive is being held Friday, June 7th and
Saturday, June 8th from 7:30am - 4:30pm * Harvard Business
School * 3 Soldiers Field Road * Boston, MA * Reach out
to your friends and family and ask them to (a) register
themselves and (b) spread the word through their own networks.
There is a particular need for anyone of Asian descent to
register, as patients are most likely to find a donor within
their own race.
