BENEFITING: The Icla da Silva Foundation, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Jun 10, 2016
Peter Urquiaga was a brother, husband, father and friend. In June of 2011, he was diagnosed with MDS. He vowed, upon getting better, to assist others during their course of treatment. Tragically, when a bone marrow match was found, he was too sick to undergo a transplant. On November 28, 2011, at the age of 40, he lost his battle to MDS.
To honor my brother and to carry out his wish to help others, I am hosting a Marrow Drive/Fundraiser in his memory. Make a difference through a financial gift, bone marrow donation, or by volunteering.
Help me in this journey and turn the impossible into the achievable for a patient in need of a cure!
How YOU can help:
If you are between the ages of 18 and 44, register as a bone marrow donor by completing a consent form and doing a simple cheek cell swab!
