Be the Match Marrow Drive -Monday!


Monday May 9th Greenville College will be hosting a Bone Marrow Drive in honor of Randy “Beast” Bister, an alum of Greenville College '08, in the Krober Room from 10:30am-6:30pm.

Randy was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Leukemia and is patiently waiting for a match. He completed one round of chemo this last week and will be admitted to the hospital in the next couple days for another round.

While at Greenville College Randy was a member of the football and track & field teams.

You could be the one who saves a life. All it takes is a swab of your cheek. That’s it! If you are already in the registry, please encourage your students, colleagues, neighbors, family and friends to take part in this amazing act of service.

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.
