Bone marrow registry drive scheduled

(Continued)

A bone marrow transplant is a lifesaving treatment for people with leukemia, lymphoma and many other blood diseases. First, patients undergo chemotherapy and sometimes radiation to destroy their diseased marrow. Then, a donor’s health blood-forming cells are given directly into the patient’s bloodstream, where they can begin to function and multiply. For a patient’s body to accept these health cells, the patient needs a donor who is a close match.

Questions about the process and times to register can be answered by contacting Mary Comstock at the school, (660) 947-3361, ext. 303 or at mcomstock@putnamcoutyr1.net.
