FINDING DONORS

Posted on: October 27, 2011


There’s a campaign underway to find a perfect “one match” stem cell or bone marrow donor throughout Canada and today the search came to the campus at UWO.  Not just anyone can be a one match donor there are limitations, but the hope is that many will sign up and agree to be available to donate stem cells or bone marrow should a person in need match their type.  The challenge hits university campus’ this time of year because university age students fall into the perfect demographic to be a donor.  On campus this afternoon they were taking cheek swabs to enroll these students into the program.  The goal is to beat the number of enrollees from last year an impressive six hundred and forty three.
