Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) August 21, 2006
Justin (last name withheld by US Dept. of Defense), a 28-year old Navy SEAL, is asking for your help in battling life-threatening leukemia. Justin needs a bone marrow transplant and none of his family members is a match. You can offer hope to Justin and the thousands of other people with leukemia who are awaiting bone marrow transplants, by registering for the National Bone Marrow Donor Program. Simply call 1-800-MARROW2 (1-800-627-7692) or visit http://www.marrow.org to find a collection center near you.
Most blood drives will also offer donors the opportunity to join the registry when they donate blood, so check with your local Red Cross chapter by calling 1-800-GIVE-LIFE (1-800-448-3543) for a drive or center in your community.
Soldiers’ Angels, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides support to our troops, has paired up with the Department of Defense and Justin’s family to spread the word about Justin beyond his hometown of Spotswood, New Jersey. “Justin needs a very special kind of support, not just from Soldiers’ Angels, but from all Americans, to win this battle”, said Patti Patton-Bader, founder of Soldiers’ Angels.
Soldiers’ Angels has set up a fund to help Justin and his family offset some of the expenses associated with his disease and recovery. You can learn more about Justin, his family and Soldiers’ Angels and make your donation at http://www.soldiersangels.org. To sign up for the National Bone Marrow Donor Program, call 1-800-MARROW2 (1-800-627-7692) or visit http://www.marrow.org.
