One Love for 80...Help Needed

80 and his mom's hand
Aidan (or 80) as some call him is a TNT honored hero and he needs our help!  I have not personally met 80 and his family but Andy, my friend, knows them and I get my updates from him as well as the One Love for 80 facebook page.

80 and Andy this past weekend
80 has had a long battle with leukemia most recently that diagnosis has turned into AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia).  80 needs a bone marrow transplant but his family members are NOT a match and currently there is not a match in the registry so we need MORE people to sign up as donors!

On Sunday, February 17 in Prosper there will be a BONE MARROW DRIVE...please come out and get swabbed. By getting swabbed this puts you in the database with two organizations - Delete Blood Cancer and Be the Match.  We encourage you to get familiar with both.  Delete Blood Cancer is the one sponsoring 80's drive this weekend.  You must be between 18 and 55 and in good general health. If you are found to be a match, you will be notified separately and given more information on additional testing.

ONE LOVE FOR 80 - Bone Marrow Donor Drive
Sunday, February 17, 2013
1:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Lighthouse Christian Fellowship Church
4255 E. Prosper Trail 
Prosper, TX

I have a PDF that I can email if you have a church group or organization that you are willing to email this information too or you can just send the link to this blog.  We need as many people to get swabbed...not only for 80 but for others whose life depends on finding a donor!

Please do not let a lack of information or misinformation STOP you from getting swabbed or becoming a donor.  Click the above image to learn the FACTS.
