Register To Be A Bone Marrow Donor This Saturday At Temple Beth Emeth


seth kushner bone marrow registry drive
This Saturday, June 14, Temple Beth Emeth (83 Marlborough Road on the corner of Church Avenue) will be holding a bone marrow registry drive inspired by fellow Brooklynite Seth Kushner, the son of a TBE congregant, who was diagnosed last month with Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

No donor has been found yet for Seth, who remains in the hospital separated from his four-year-old son–but stopping by Temple Beth Emeth on Saturday between 12:30 and 5pm will give Seth the chance to beat his disease, and all you have to do is fill out one short form and provide a quick cheek swab. No marrow will be taken on Saturday–your information will simply be kept in the event that you’re a match for Seth or someone else living with blood cancer.

If you’re between 18 and 55 years old and meet the eligibility requirements to be a bone marrow donor, you can order a free volunteer donor kit from DeleteBloodCancer.org and send in your swab. And even if you’re not able to volunteer or donate marrow, please help spread the word!
