Supporting Individuals and Families Battling Blood Cancer

We do this by:

1.     Hosting Blood and Platelet Drives in the Chicagoland and Cincinnati areas. Not only do and having individuals register for the national bone marrow registry, which involves simply taking a swab of the inside of your cheek, during our blood drives.

2.     Educating the general public on the importance of having a Complete Blood Count (CBC) annually, and reasons why platelet donations are so critically needed. Also we’ll discuss symptoms that may indicate why you should make an appointment with your primary care physician (PCP).

3.     Fundraising events that will allow us to support families that are battling blood cancers.
