From Raion Zou:
In honor of Chris' sister, the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry, "Be the Match", is coming to Coraopolis!
Chris' sister was diagnosed with Polycythaemia Vera, a rare blood cancer, and her condition can only be cured by a bone marrow transplant. Chris has been on the Marrow Donor Registry for a while and has been looking for ways to spread awareness for Blood Cancer and Leukemia. Maybe you can't save Cara's life, but you could save the life of another cancer patient.
The test is non-invasive and involves swabbing of the inside of the mouth. Your sample is sent to a lab where it is typed, and should you be a match for someone awaiting a transplant, you will be notified. A representative from the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry will be available on December 16th from 11am - 2pm at Raion Zou to take samples and answer any questions you may have.
Healing involves giving some of yourself to the person you're trying to heal whether it be your energy, your spirit, or your time. We all have the ability to heal others, and we hope you'll join us for this event! #teamcara #notallheroeswearcapes#healing
