From an email:
My good friend, Elissa, is a talented, lovable, hilarious, 26-year-old aspiring rabbi and all-together fabulous person. She is also battling an aggressive form of cancer and needs a bone marrow transplant to save her life. You could be Elissa’s match or the miracle that some other mother, father, child, or friend is desperately looking for!
If you are not yet part of the National Bone Marrow Registry, now is your chance to swab your cheek and help save a life. Please come to a Gift of Life bone marrow donor drives:
* Thursday, August 5 from 5:00 pm to 7:30 pm at the DC Jewish Community Center (1529 16th Street, NW, Washington DC). For more information, contact Allison G. ([email protected]) or Debra E. ([email protected]).Please let us know you’re coming by signing up at www.washingtondcjcc.org/elissa
*Registration involves a simple cheek swab, and eligible donors must be between the ages of 18 and 60 and in good health.*
Sweet Green will be parking their Sweet Flow Mobile outside of the JCC during the bone marrow drive and will be offering $1 off frozen yogurt to people who join the national bone marrow registry.
Don’t let the JCC locations fool you–people of all backgrounds and faith traditions are welcome and encouraged to participate in these events.
