EMMC’s CancerCare of Maine Hosts Bone Marrow Donor Drive

Bangor, Maine – Every ten minutes, someone is diagnosed with blood cancer. In that same time, you could take steps to help save the life of someone diagnosed with leukemia or another blood disorder by registering to be a bone marrow donor. This Saturday, August 18, EMMC’s CancerCare of Maine is hosting a Bone Marrow Donor Drive.

This is an opportunity for community members, ages 18-55 who are at least 110 pounds, to add their name to the bone marrow registry. The process only requires the completion of a short form, and a cheek swab, no blood draws! Stop by the Bone Marrow Drive during the Champion the Cure event at the Lafayette Family Cancer Center in Brewer from 9 am – 4 pm Saturday, August 18!
