honor of Dr. Deitemeyer’s inauguration on Nov. 3.

CPCC and Project Life invite students to attend its upcoming Drive Thru Swabbing event, being held on CPCC’s Central Campus from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., on Nov. 1, in the Overcash Driveway.

CPCC-based student organizations, including Rotaract Club, Cytotechnology Student Association and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, are all partnering with CPCC Service-Learning/Student Life to play a key leadership role in this initiative which seeks to add 700 new donors to the National Bone Marrow Registry List.

During the event, participants will have the inside of their cheeks swabbed for a tissue sample and complete paperwork. The process will take no longer than 10 minutes. After completing the registration process, participants will not only be added to the National Bone Marrow Registry List, but also have the opportunity to enjoy a free lunch – provided by CPCC’s Baking & Pastry Arts students – sign a well wish card for Dr. Deitemeyer and win a variety of prizes.

Come out and be a part of the movement and help save a life!

The Project Life Movement, a campus-based national marrow donor organization, is dedicated to saving lives and curing cancer and other diseases by identifying and registering volunteers for marrow and tissue donation. For

Project Life

Project Life

over thirty years, one of the best kept secrets in providing cures for cancers like leukemia & lymphoma and for diseases like sickle cell anemia has been bone marrow donation and transplantation. In 1987, a federal mandate created the National Marrow Donor Program. The program had a simple goal: connecting volunteer donors with patients whose only chance for a cure was a bone marrow transplant.

Project Life is partnering with Central Piedmont Community College for the fourth year to educate students, faculty and staff at CPCC about serving as a bone marrow donor.  The year’s goal is to recruit 600 potential new donors who will be added to the National Bone Marrow Registry List.  Click here to read more about Project Life. Since then, thousands of individuals have participated, and the program has grown to include 10 other 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.
The Cytotechnology Student Association, the Student Government Association, and Phi Theta Kappa Honorary Fraternity are all partnering with Student Life & Service-Learning to support this initiative. We would love to have you come out and be a part of the Movement and help save a life!
Please contact Jenn Marts, Central Campus Service-Learning Coordinator, for more details (Jenn.Marts@cpcc.edu), for more information or to join us at one of our upcoming Project Life events! We hope you decide to be a potential donor or Project Life Volunteer!

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.

these deadly diseases.

CPCC is partnering again with the Project Life Movement, a campus-based national marrow donor organization. This Valentine’s Day, all six CPCC campuses intend to educate students, faculty and staff at CPCC about how simple it is to be included on the bone marrow registry. If you are a match, it is also relatively easy, safe and painless to donate the marrow that is so desperately needed by others suffering from these diseases. Our goal is to recruit 500 new donors who will be added to the National Bone Marrow Registry List. All that is needed from you is a simple cheek swab for a tissue sample. It will only take about 20 minutes, and no blood sample is necessary. Click here to read more about Project Life at CPCC, and be sure to read the FAQ link.
CPCC students are playing a key leadership role in this initiative. The Association of Nursing Students, Cardiovascular Technology Association, Cytotechnology Student Association, Dental Assisting Club, Medical Assisting Program, Medical Lab Technology Program, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, Physical Therapy Assisting Program and Service Club are all partnering with Student Life/Service-Learning to support this initiative.
CPCC will conduct six drives to recruit bone marrow donors on February 14, 2013, between 9 a.m.-2 p.m. at  Central and Levine, Cato (9 a.m-noon), Harper (11 a.m.-2 p.m.), Harris (10 a.m.-1 p.m. ), and Mercancas (9 a.m.-noon) campuses.  Please come be a part of this great initiative!

up at Levine, making a grand total of 308 new people on the National Bone Marrow Registry. It is likely that one or more of our new donors will have the opportunity to save a life one day!

We would like to extend an enormous thank you to the students and instructors who continuously supported and volunteered during the Project Life Bone Marrow drives. The following CPCC Health Science programs were an active part of our success: Cardiovascular Technology, Cytotechnology, Human Services, Medical Assisting, Medical Lab Assisting and Physical Therapy Assisting.
We look forward to our next Project Life drives in spring of 2013!
