Bone Marrow Donor Drive

Bone Marrow Donor Drive





In memory of Shannon Tavarez, Delaware River Books and Delete Blood Cancer are giving you the chance to save the life of a blood cancer patient searching for a bone marrow transplant. Only 4 out of 10 patients searching will ever find the match they need, but you can help change those odds. It only takes the swab of a cheek to see if you could be a life-saving match for a patient in need! ***The chances of finding a match are even lower for mixed-race and minority patients, so we would especially like to welcome such donors to our drive.*** Note from Carmen: Shannon Tavarez was a lovely, talented young lady I had the privilege of working with six years ago at THE LION KING on Broadway. She had to leave the show when she was diagnosed with leukemia in April, 2010. Sadly, Shannon lost her battle with the disease on November 1st of that year. She inspired (and has continued to inspire) many people to register as bone marrow donors, and has especially brought to the fore the difficulties that mixed-race and minority patients have in finding matches
