Join Team Peri as they host a bowling tournament and donor drive to register potential bone marrow donors to benefit patients suffering from blood cancer whom are in need of a lifesaving transplant.

    The drive, held on behalf of Gift of Life Marrow Registry, and bowling tournament will be on Sunday, November 18, 2018 at Woodmere Lanes, 948 Broadway, Woodmere, N.Y. from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Celebrities scheduled to appear include SNY sports analyst and former N.Y.

    When she was just four months old, Peri’s parents, Lori and Paul Finkelstein, were told their daughter’s condition was “hopeless and that physical therapy was pointless.” Peri has been on a ventilator since she was two.

    “We truly believe that we have a strong connection to the Gift of Life organization, and our Team Peri family can empathize with other families who are in what feels like a helpless medical situation,” said Lori Finkelstein. “This is exactly why Team Peri wants to swab for life to save the lives of the ones who need the help, and need to have a chance to live a long and healthy life.”

    Everyone is encouraged to participate in the marrow donor drive. It’s 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.
