Be the Match!

bethematch.jpgThe SSU Student Health Advisory Committee and the Nu Alpha Kappa fraternity (NAK) are co-sponsoring a donor match drive on Tuesday, March 8 and Wednesday, March 9 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. in the Campus Rec Center.

Become a registered potential donor with the National Marrow Donor Program, which helps patients with leukemia and other life-threatening diseases find a marrow or stem cell donor matching their tissue type. It takes just two easy steps: fill out a consent form, rub a cotton swab across your inner cheek (to gather cells for tissue typing) and that's it!

Actual donation only happens if a match is later found and the registered donor decides to proceed with a donation at that time.

To learn more, visit www.BeTheMatch.org and attend the "Be the Match" Education Night on Monday, March 7 at 7 p.m. in the Schulz 2nd floor Media Room. Guest speakers will be present to relate their personal stories.
