Bone Marrow Drive and Fundraiser for Briana Lopez – Register and donate at a location nearest you!
Please register to become a bone marrow donor for Briana or anyone who is waiting for a match.
On January 2016, Briana Lopez was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).
After spending 8 months in the hospital, intensive chemotherapies and a bone marrow transplant from her mother, Briana was declared in remission.
Unfortunately, Briana relapsed early November 2016 when she developed a few turmors that led to radiation and more chemotherapy.
She is now in desperate need of a compatble match to do another bone marrow trasplant to save her life!
HOW THE PROCESS WORKS:
1. Fill out a form and swab your cheek at the bone marrow drive.
2. Wait to see if you match a patient. You can match a patient anytime before your 61st birthday!
2. If you match a patient in need you will be called and asked to get a blood test and physical done to ensure good health (paid for by Be The Match).
3. If cleared, you will be asked to donate blood stem cells or bone marrow cells to the patient you match!
