  • (1888PressRelease) April 15, 2022 - Gift of Life Marrow Registry will host a donor recruitment drive for Rose Bradwell, a 46-year-old wife and mother of three daughters who is battling leukemia and in urgent need of a blood stem cell or bone marrow transplant in order to survive.

    The recruitment event will be held Saturday, April 16, 2022 from 10:00 am – 1:30 pm at Egg’stravaganza 2022 located at the Samuel J. Ferreri Community Park, 2905 Jog Rd., Greenacres, FL 33463.

    Bradwell, who will be in attendance, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in December 2020. She doesn’t have a matching donor in her family, causing her to turn to the community for support. Bradwell is of Haitian descent and her best chance of finding a match is with someone of similar ancestry. Her family is working with Gift of Life to encourage the Haitian community, in particular, to join in the effort to save her life.

    To join the Gift of Life registry, donors simply swab the inside of their cheeks and complete a registration questionnaire. 18 to 35-year-olds who are in good health (the ideal demographic for successful transplants) are especially urged to attend and join.

    Those unable to attend in person can request a swab kit to be delivered at home by visiting To hold a donor recruitment drive, email Traci Ackerman at tackerman ( @ ) giftoflife dot org dot
