Can you please help me spread the word about our drive on your email lists, blogs, sites? Forward to anyone that might be intrested in writing about it. I am trying to get the word out about the need for Marrow Donors.
Here is a link post I put up on Silicn Valley Moms Blog with ALL the information about our drive:
Date: Saturday, April 19th
Location: 95 Crescent Drive, Palo Alto, CA 94301
Time: 9:00am to 3:30pm
I have a corporate sponsor covering all fees and expenses. No potential donor will be turned away.
We are making an extra plea to multicultural/minority races, inclucing Asian, African American, Indian, American Indian and South Pacific donors..... but everyone is welcome and encouraged to show up for our drive....
Why am I doing this? Yes, it is personal. My mother has AML (diagnosed in Dec 2007). She has been matched with an unrelated donor and will be receiving a transplant in mid May 2008. I know that there are so many leukemic patients that do NOT have a match.... and I am doing this drive for them....
Please.... help me spread the word! Even if you are not local to Silicon Valley.
