My thanks to Savadelis Films for creating this video, to the www.AADP.org for coordinating the drive, The Museum of Technology and Innovation for hosting it, to Team Matthew for helping us that day and to all of our great volunteers for starring in the video and helping at the live drive that day.
Registering at a live marrow donor drive is easier then you think. This video illustrates the 3 simple steps involved when you choose to register in person. This page on the "Be The Match" website has a zip code locater. Just enter your zip code and it will show you upcoming drives scheduled in your area.
Due to a critical need for more minorities of all ethnicities and mixed ethnicities to join the registry they can register at no charge as a federal grant covers their tissue typing cost. For Caucasians the standard fee is $52 but in many states this fee is reduced to $25 by another federal grant and in some states is free due to fundraising, insurance or sponsored drives. From June 8-22, 2009 people of Caucasian descent can also join for free during the Marrowthon. Please Click Here to learn more or to order a test kit online.
