  • (1888PressRelease) June 23, 2017 - Cancer is a random killer. It can strike any one of us at any time. Join Gift of Life Marrow Registry and the Chamber of Commerce of the Palm Beaches as we team up to register potential bone marrow and blood stem cell donors to benefit patients suffering from diseases like leukemia and lymphoma whom are in dire need of a transplant.

    The donor drive will be held at Network for a Cause on Tuesday, July 11, 2017 at the DoubleTree West Palm Beach Airport, 1808 S. Australian Ave., West Palm Beach, Fla., and will run from 5:30-7:30 pm.

    Everyone is encouraged to participate in the drive. Itís fast and painless. If you are between the ages of 18 and 45 and in general good health, you are eligible to be screened and join the worldwide registry for patients in need. A simple swab from the inside of your cheek is all it takes to determine if you are a match.

    Although there is no cost to join, there is a $60 lab processing fee for each kit. Gift of Life relies on the generosity of donations to help offset these costs. A portion of the eventís 50/50 raffle will benefit Gift of Life.
