Get cheeky, get swabbed and save lives through stem cell donation
Saturday, May 12 | 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. | Grand Court at Metropolis at Metrotown
Calling out all healthy Vancouverites between the ages of 17 and 50 years, from all ethnicities.
In honour of Mother's day this weekend, do as mother's do, and put others first by giving life through blood donation or potential stem cell donation.
Blood donors and stem cell matches play a crucial role in helping people survive devastating diseases, but still, hundreds of Canadians struggle to find a match each year.
Special attention is being draw to young adults from ethnic minorities since optimal chances of a match are donors from within one’s own ethnic group.
Willing to be a potential stem cell donor? All it takes is a simple cheek swab and fifteen minutes of your time to register with OneMatch (Canada’s unrelated stem cell bone marrow donor network) as a potential donor to help save someone’s life!
Come out this weekend to register in person and be swabbed at the same time (bring photo ID and Care Card).
If you can't make it, go to www.onematch.ca and register on-line (swabbing kit will be sent to you).
