Gabriola Stem Cell Swabbing Drive

Saturday, May 18, 2024 (10:00 AM - 2:00 PM) (PDT)


Calling all 17-35 year old Gabriolans! (Although I’m not sure where to find you or if you’re part of this board. Maybe your caregiver sees this? Maybe you know someone who thinks this is just as COOL as I do)…. We are hosting a Stem Cell Swabbing drive @ the first summer market on May 18th!�Find our booth & come swab your cheek. That’s it. It is painless and simple. You will get put onto the stem cell registry, which is worldwide. If you are ever matched to a patient in need you will get a phone call to see if you’re still interested. Why swab? People and children all over Canada are fighting illnesses that require Bone Marrow Transplants. This simple act, could gift them a new life. Donor are able to choose if they are willing to donate bone marrow or peripheral blood stream cells. Thanks so much and hope to see you all there.
