Two Ways to Do the Right Thing Today

It only takes a few moments to do something today that could save a life. Take part in the Bone Marrow Drive at the Trinity River Campus or donate blood.   Or both.  Neither takes much time and you will feel so good about yourself afterward. Representatives of the National Marrow Donor Program at Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth will be there from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. as will Carter Blood Care  to take blood donations.  It only takes a swab of the inside of your cheek to sign up for the bone marrow donor program. The swab will  determine if you are a match for someone with leukemia who  needs a bone marrow transplant.  The bone marrow drive will be on Trinity River Main Street (second floor) and the blood donations will be taken in Action A on the fourth floor. For more information call Louann Schulze at 817-515-1280 or e-mail her at Schulze is a staff member at Trinity River, who received a bone marrow transplant in 1994, points out there is a critical need for bone marrow donors who are Hispanic, Asian and African American.
