Throughout this week, CURE is hosting a bone marrow drive at Penn. From the Daily Pennsylvanian:
The registration process, which will take place all week on College Green, is simple, entailing only the completion of a form and cotton swabbing of the cheek for stem cell samples, Chan said. The group sends the samples to be tested for bone marrow type, and people who were tested are entered into a national registry.

From Philly.com:
Now, more than a year after his death in January 2007, Emily Greenberg is about to honor the pledge she made to her younger brother. On April 26, a bone-marrow drive will take place at the Norris Homes Community Center, at 1915 N. 11th St., where the need for donors is as great as the fear.

When an African American gets leukemia, he or she is more than nine times more likely to die than a Caucasian because of a shortage of genetic matches for bone marrow.
