KRMC testing for marrow matches

KINGMAN - Kingman Regional Medical Center will host a bone marrow drive from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the Del E Webb Wellness Center conference rooms, 1719 Beverly Ave.

Participants will be tested for bone marrow matching using a swabbing technique that is easy and painless.

In addition, they can sign up to volunteer or donate to "Be the Match" - the organization that coordinates bone marrow matching.

Thousands of patients across the country depend on the Be the Match Registry to find a donor who can give them the chance for a cure.

Bone marrow donors need to be between 18 and 44, meet the health guidelines and be willing to donate to any patient in need at any time.
