You Can Save a Life! “Project Life Project” Bone Marrow Registry Drives are Coming to CPCC Campuses!

Project Life

Project Life

CPCC, together with Project Life (a national program dedicated to finding and enlisting college students as potential donors for bone marrow and tissue transplants) is partnering to educate CPCC students, faculty and staff on the importance of becoming a bone marrow donor.

The CPCC Chapter’s first official event was held in February 2012, when it recruited more than 300 new donors to the National Bone Marrow Registry.

The next donor bone marrow typing drives are scheduled at varying times at all six CPCC campuses.  Details are as follows:

LEVINE CAMPUS: February 20 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Location – 2nd floor foyer

MERANCAS CAMPUS: February 26 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.

CENTRAL CAMPUS: April 9 from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

HARRIS CAMPUS: April 15 (time TBD)

There will also be a Bone Marrow question and answer panel at Central Campus on Wednesday, April 2  from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m. to help dispel some of the myths about bone marrow donation.

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.
