Trenton Thunder Fight Blood Cancer
The Trenton Thunder are hosting a Swab to Save Lives event this weekend to help give hope to children and adults fighting blood cancers and other life-threatening blood diseases. Volunteers and representatives from the National Marrow Donor will walk people who are 18-44 through registering with Be The Match and swabbing the inside of their cheeks. Only 1 out of every 430 people who register will match a patient in need and be called for further testing.
There is a critical need for African American, Hispanic and Asian people to register with Be The Match. You could match and save the life of a child here in New Jersey or one of thousands of patients across the country!
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Arm & Hammer Park in Trenton. Can’t make it to the event? You can register for Be The Match online and order a swab kit sent to your home by visiting https://join.bethematch.org/trentonthunder
