Please Help Save a Life: Emergency Bone Marrow Drive

Marc is a 9 year old boy living in Marlboro NJ. He has a rare genetic blood disorder known as HLH. Marc desperately needs a bone marrow transplant and there is no ideal match today.

Since tissue type is inherited, the best chance of finding a genetically matched donor for Marc, as well as hundreds of other patients with a variety of diseases, lies with those of similar ethnicity. While no one will be turned away from the drive, those of Eastern European ancestry offer the greatest chance of a successful match.

The Yeshiva University Student Medical Ethics Society will be hosting an Emergency Bone Marrow Drive.

A few minutes of your day could save a life!

  • Thursday lunch in the Cafeteria at Wilf Campus, from 12-2pm
  • Wednesday during club hour (2:40 onwards) in the Lobby of 245 Lexington & Le Bistro Cafeteria from 1-4 pm
  • Thursday night & Motzeh Shabbos at the SOY Seforim Sale

  • Thank you so much for participating!
