Bone Marrow Drive Returns to Campus

Phi Sigma Pi, Delta Sigma Pi and Phi Delta are working together to bring two “Be the Match” bone marrow donor registration drives to campus April 23. The first will take place from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. in the Student Union Building Down Under and the second will be later that evening from 5:30-8:30 p.m. in Centennial Hall.

The “Be the Match” registry connects potential donors with thousands of patients suffering from blood cancers, for whom a bone marrow transplant can mean life or death. Learn more about “Be the Match” and what it means to join the registry here.

Through the “Be the Match” registry Truman students are making a real difference. Tori Holt, a junior nursing major, registered on campus in January 2014. By the fall, she found out that she was a match for a baby boy with a severe combined immunodeficiency syndrome. Holt completed her donation one year after she registered.
