Bone Marrow Registry Drive

  • University of Washington Bothell (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Every year, thousands of adults and children need bone marrow transplants — a procedure which may be their only chance for survival. Although some patients with leukemia or other cancers have a genetically matched family member who can donate, about 70 percent do not. These patients' lives depend on finding an unrelated individual with a compatible tissue type, often within their own ethnic group, who is willing to donate marrow for them.

We are partnering with a UW Bothell student, Doug Woods, to host a campus Bone Marrow Registry Drive. Doug came up with the idea to empower UW Bothell students to make a difference in the lives of patients in desperate need of bone marrow, and he will be coordinating the drive on October 13th. 

Participating in the drive involves nothing more than approximately 10 minutes of paperwork and giving a cheek swab. Registrants are then added to a national bone marrow registry. If they end up being a match for someone they will be notified by the registry, and given the choice of whether or not they would like to go through with donation. Our volunteers will spread the word around campus and help promote the event on the day of the drive. Please consider becoming a part of the registry; your actions may save a life of someone in need.

Group Meeting (Location: ARC-121)

Please come out to our fall meeting and get to know fellow community-minded students. We will be discussing our plans for the next quarter, as well as opportunities to get involved in the community. We are hoping to gain input from members and incorporate your feedback into our strategic vision. The date and time of this meeting will likely change over the next week, as we adjust to the availability of the majority of our members. We will post updates and more information here once the date and time has been finalized.
