Samaritan Health Services hospitals and corporate locations will host a bone marrow registry drive the second week of July.
Samaritan is partnering with Be The Match to save lives of blood disease patients both locally and worldwide. To join this drive, you must be between the ages of 18 and 44, in good general health and willing to donate to any patient in need. The marrow registry process will take 15 to 20 minutes, which includes filling out registration paperwork and completing a cheek swab. No blood will be drawn. If you are unable to attend one of the drives below or are age 45 or older, please visit join.bethematch.org/Samaritan for information on how you can join the drive.
