Bone Marrow Donor Drive

Sam LeMar, a sixth grader at Westridge Elementary, has been diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of leukemia.  He is currently at the University of MN awaiting a Bone Marrow Transplant.  Sam’s friends and family are holding a Bone Marrow Donor drive in his honor on Saturday, May 10 from 9 to 3 in the Westridge Community Room at 5500 E.P. True Parkway in West Des Moines.

It only takes a few moments to have your cheek swabbed to be added to a national registry of bone marrow donors. If you are a match for someone, you will have the opportunity to donate your bone marrow and save a life.

Team Sam t-shirts will be available at the drive as well as opportunities to donate to the family.
