Please join us on Thursday, February 2 at 12:30 p.m. in Central High 301 for a Lunch and Learn Panel Discussion about Project Life and the National Bone Marrow Registry program. Our panel will include: Pediatric Oncologist and Project Life Board Member Dr. Paulette Bryant; two time marrow donor Steve Ball; and marrow transplant recipient and Oncology Physician’s Assistant Brian Griffin. The discussion will be moderated by Project Life Executive Director David Lindsay, who is himself a bone marrow transplant recipient and leukemia survivor.
CPCC will conduct two Project Life drives to recruit bone marrow donors: February 14, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the Overcash Lobby; and February 16, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Levine Campus 2nd Floor Foyer. The process is simple, painless and free, requiring only a cheek swab. No blood or other tissue collection is necessary to participate and be listed in the National Bone Marrow Registry.
