Bone Marrow Drive at Roy O'Brien Ford - Request for Donor Registrations

Please join us in registering for the "Be The Match" drive on Friday, February 18th, any time from 10 A.M. to 3 P.M. in the new car showroom at the dealership

As many of you know, our controller, Art DeCook, has lymphoma and although he has found a match for a bone marrow transplant in his two brothers, he and we wish to extend our heartiest invitation to help others so desperately in need of a bone marrow transplant.

The registration process takes no more than fifteen minutes, and, in addition to some basic paperwork, only involves the swabbing of the inside of your cheek. There are no needles, or taking of samples, other than the cheek swab, and you'll feel great about potentially saving someone's life anywhere in the world!

In addition, we will need about twelve volunteers to help with the registration process. There will be a half-hour training session in the conference room, on Friday, February 11th at 10 A.M. I have had this training and it is very straight-forward and easy to master. Many of you have asked what else you can do to help Art in his battling of this cancer. Here is your opportunity to do just that, Won't you please come and learn how to process the expected one hundred or so registrants for the following Friday's drive? Art and his family would be overjoyed at the prospects of signing up all of these potential "Life Savers!"

To recap:

Training for volunteers on Friday, February 11th, 10 A.M., in the Roy O'Brien Conference Room. Thirty Minutes

"Be the Match" Donor Drive in the Roy O'Brien New Car Showroom on Friday, February 18th any time from 10 A.M. to 3 P.M.

God Bless You for your concern and help.
