Volunteers are needed to join an international registry and become potential donors of bone marrow for the benefit of people with cancer or other life-threatening conditions.
Marrow donors should be in good health, between the ages of 18 and 60, and available for any patient who is searching for a marrow match. Donors' records are typically kept in the registry database until their 61st birthday.
More information at the Garth Englund Blood Center at either Poudre Valley Hospital, Fort Collins, or Medical Center of the Rockies, Loveland.
To learn more about eligibility requirements and how volunteers donate their bone marrow, go to the National Marrow Donor Program web site or call 1.800.MARROW-2.
