Are you a life-saver but don't know it?
Find out next Tuesday (March 17, 2009) by stopping by the new Hamburg Fire Station (that's the official name of what is usually referred to as the Hamburg Taj Mahal) between CVS and Michigan Rehab between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. to have the inside of your mouth swabbed with a Q-tip and fill out a form.
That's all you need to do to participate in the Hamburg Kiwanis and Patrick Financial Bone Marrow Registration Drive.
You'll receive a token for a free beer at Zukey Lake Tavern and have your name entered into a drawing for four Detroit Pistons tickets just for participating.
Your information will be entered into the National Marrow Donation Program Registry.
If your tissue type is a match with someone who is in need of marrow, you will be asked to simply make a blood donation. The marrow needed will be harvested from your blood.
To participate, you must be between the age of 18 and 60 and meet the health guidelines. Find out more at marrow.org
Come by Tuesday. Make someone's day. Save their life!
