JADA BASCOM FOUNDATION: enrolling bone marrow donors and saving lives
Hey, You! Got Marrow?
September 2014 heralds the 3rd year the Jada Bascom Foundation will be participating in an international effort to enroll life-saving bone marrow donors. We are teaming up with ViviamolnPositivo, an Italian nonprofit, that partners with The Italian Bone Marrow Donor Association and the Italian National Bone Marrow Registry to enroll donors and save lives in a Bone Marrow Awareness Day called "Ehi, tu! Hai Midollo?"(Hey, You! Got Marrow?). This year on September 27th Ehi, tu! Hai Midollo? drives will take place in 60 cities across Italy! In France, Spain and the USA. Join the Jada Bascom Foundation in this international effort by holding a "Drive in a Box" in your town this September.
