Project Life bone marrow registry is coming to CPCC!

Project Life bone marrow registry is coming to CPCC!

Getting typed is painless and entails nothing more than having the inside of your mouth swabbed. It’s that easy!

Then what? You wait to see if your participation makes you a match and helps bring hope and healing to a person in need.

Help save a life by joining us at one of our upcoming donor drives scheduled at a CPCC campus near you.

The program began more than 20 years ago, when a group of students at Davidson College started a grassroots movement to identify college students as potential donors for the National Bone Marrow Registry.

Since then, thousands of people have participated, and the program has grown to include an expanding number of college campuses in North Carolina. CPCC is proud to be included among these higher education institutions and house the first active Project Life chapter in the Charlotte metro area.
