Bone Marrow Drive Set for Nov. 9-10

Phi Sigma Pi, Delta Sigma Pi and Phi Delta are working together to bring the “Be the Match” bone marrow donor registration drive back to campus Nov. 9-10.

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.

This year’s drive will take place Nov. 9-10 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. in the Student Union Building Down Under.

Through the “Be the Match” registry Truman students are making a real difference. Tori Holt, a senior 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.
