Bone Marrow Drive Today in Tyler

Leukemia Patient

I’ve been on the National Bone Marrow registry for 14 years now. So far, I’ve never been considered a match for someone, but you never know. It’s easy to register and you just might save someone’s life someday. I came across this story this morning and I thought I would share it with you.

Over the last three months, life has changed drastically for Cody Chandler, a Tyler doctor diagnosed with leukemia just after Thanksgiving. Chandler is a young father, husband and doctor. He describes himself as being “pretty healthy” before he was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in November.

Chandler’s leukemia is under remission at the moment and he is still continuing with chemotherapy. But if Chandler were to relapse, he would need to have a bone marrow transplant.

Heart to Heart Hospice has set up a Bone Marrow registration drive for today from 1 to 6pm. Like me, they want to educate and encourage others to consider beingĀ  on the National Bone Marrow registry. Heart to Heart Hospice is at 1402 Rice Road in Tyler.

To join the registry, it only takes someone 15 seconds to swab your cheek and a few minutes to fill out some paperwork. It’s easier then you think. You may never be called to donate or you may, but just think of the blessing you could be to someone who’s life depends on donors like you!
