Help Save Lives
I received an e-mail from our MOMS club that was passed on from the San Pedro MOMS club. A little girl from that club has recently been diagnosed with Leukemia and they are encouraging everyone that can to participate in a bone marrow registry drive. They are having one in Torrance on Dec. 14 and another in San Pedro in January. I just checked online and you can find out when there will be one in your area if you are at all interested. I found out they are having one in Santa Clarita in February and if I can't make it to the others mentioned I am definitely going in February. It's an easy cheek swab and costs $25 to then be on the registry. Even if I can't help this little girl, it opens the possibility of helping someone else in the future. I didn't even know a registry like this existed!
