Will you #BeTheMatch? Donor registry drive set for Tuesday at Giants game

Posted on Feb. 05 2016 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
On Tuesday, Feb. 9, the Marion Giants will face the Mississinewa Indians on the court. However, the teams are teaming together to compete against a much tougher opponent: cancer.


Fans will have the opportunity during the game to become part of the Be the Match Registry. A simple, quick, and painless cheek swab is all that's needed. This is not a donation (like during a blood drive), but simply a way to add yourself to the list of potential bone marrow donors.

Every year more than 10,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with life-threatening diseases such as leukemia or lymphoma, and their best option for a cure is a bone marrow transplant. But 70 percent of those people will NOT find a matching donor in their family. That's where the Be the Match Registry comes in. YOU could save a life. We hope you'll consider participating in this important donor registry drive at the Giants game next Tuesday.

This Be the Match Registry donor drive is in honor of former Butler basketball star Andrew Smith, who recently lost his battle with leukemia, and his family in Grant County. Jim and Nedra Sutter, longtime supporters of Marion basketball and Marion Community Schools, are Andrew's grandparents.
