If you are unable to attend this drive you can find out about drive close to you here. Or request a home kit here

When people think of “donating bone marrow,” they think that it’s painful. This is a myth that needs to be busted! Although, bone marrow can be taken directly from your bones and may be painful, with advanced technology more than 75% of marrow is taken from you blood stream. If you are curious as to how the process works, visit the National Bone Marrow online

Randy Bister was an excellent student, a dedicated athlete, a wonderful friend and a guy after God’s heart. He’s only 25 and has so much life to live.
