For a second year, Lindenwood University will host a bone marrow donor drive in honor of student Sean Murray, who has a rare blood disorder.
Murray and his three brothers have Diamond-Blackfan Anemia, in which the bone marrow does not make red blood cells, and need to find matching bone marrow donors.
Last year, the university's event registered 568 people at Lindenwood and 11 were contacted as possible matches for other people on the national waiting list, said David Mathias, president of the Lindenwood Student Government Association in a press release.
This year, the donor drive will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 14 at the Spellmann Campus Center. Donors will complete paperwork and the inside of their cheek will be swabbed.
Matches to people on the national bone marrow registry will be contacted. For more information, visit www.deletebloodcancer.org.
