Join the Marrow Registry – Be the Match for Cheryl Craaybeek Marino

A Marrow Registry Drive will be held on Tuesday, December 7
at Addison Gilbert Hospital, 298 Washington Street, Gloucester, MA,
from 3:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. in the
Women’s Health Conference Room.  Guests should
enter the hospital through the Washington Street entrance.
The Drive will be hosted by "Be the Match," National Marrow Donor
program which is being held in honor of Cheryl Craaybeek Marino, an
employee in the Microbiology Department at Addison Gilbert Hospital. 
Cheryl is married and is the mother of three daughters.
Cheryl was recently diagnosed with Leukemia and she is searching
for a matching marrow donor.  The marrow requires 100% compatible match.
A simple cheek swab is all that is needed to determine if you could
be the one to save one of the thousands of patients in need of a
marrow or stem cell transplant.  At the Marrow Registry Drive on 
December 7, individuals will have the cheek swab and be asked
several health questions.  Participants will only be contacted if
they are a match for someone in need.  In order to join the registry,
you must be between 18 and 60 years of age and be in
good general health. 
Pre-registration is not required, for questions, please call
877-601-1926, extension 7723.  Please consider helping Cheryl
and the many others waiting for a match.
