We’ll be hosting another bone marrow drive this Sunday, 8/21, at Good News Church NYC (http://www.gncnyc.org/) immediately following the Sunday service, which starts at 5pm. We expect the drive to happen around 6:30pm or so in the basement of the venue, which is the Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd.
Location: Korean Central Presbyterian Church, Salt and Light Service (English Ministry Young Adults) Address: 15451 Lee Hwy Centreville, VA 20121. Room 2120 (map) Date/Time: After service on Sunday, December 30. Service begins at 2:30pm, so the drive should run from roughly 4-5pm.
I’ll be giving a short message on both Sunday, December 23 and Sunday, December 30 (drive day) related to my personal story in creating cheekswab and the need for bone marrow registrants. Given that Cheekswab officially launched almost exactly a year ago, a bone marrow drive on the second-to-last day of 2012 seems like an awesome way to end the year. It’s been an incredible run so far.
Here’s to more adventures, bone marrow registrants and saved lives in 2013! 🙂
National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) Bone Marrow Drive in Washington DC
Location: JW Marriott Hotel (web) Address: 1331 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20004 (map) Date/Time: Saturday, November 17, 2012 from 11:00am – 4:00pm
I’ve been in contact with Shannon, a friend of Janet Liang who recently moved to the DC area to practice as a lawyer. To honor Janet’s memory and to help find a match for Jeremy Kong in CA, Shannon is helping to coordinate a bone marrow drive at the 24th Annual NAPABA Convention in Washington DC. I’ll be at the convention all day at the BeTheMatch registration table with Shannon, her husband, and representatives from BeTheMatch.
Just a quick drive announcement for any folks in New York City!
Janet Liang is still searching for a donor match in the bone marrow registry! Despite the fact that her initiative has helped to register over 13,000 people and resulted in marrow matches for several others, Janet herself still needs a donor. You could be the one to save her life. If you’re in New York City, please consider visiting Teachers College at Columbia University THIS THURSDAY to see if you’re a match!
Who: Team Janet, Volunteers from Teachers College (and friends of cheekswab!)
