The Blood Center of Wisconsin, an affiliate of the National Marrow Donor Program, is hosting a bone marrow donor registry drive at UW Hospital and Clinics to increase the state's donor rolls and promote the importance of marrow donation.
Please note: The registry is open to people between the ages of 18 and 44.
The registry drive is organized by UW Health's Hematology, Oncology, Bone Marrow Transplant and Palliative Care Unit in honor of colleague Kim Schuetz's 4-year-old son Austin, who is scheduled to undergo bone marrow transplant in January prompted by a leukemia relapse.
