THE STORY:

NYCC Student Body President Bryan Kent wrote:

The first ever New York Chiropractic College Dance Marrow-Thon will serve as a fundraiser and awareness event to benefit BeTheMatch.org. Operated by the National Marrow Donor Program, BeTheMatch.org has organized the largest and most diverse marrow registry in the world. Saving lives is their mission and we are here to help. We encourage all faculty, staff, and students of NYCC to raise money, join the national bone marrow registry, and DANCE YOUR FACE OFF! 

We may be a small community, but we can have an incredible impact. We all have the chance to save a life all for the cost of 100 dollars and an oral cheek swab. You can be the match, you can save a life!

Brendan McCann wrote:

Two years ago, in a college dining hall, two University of New Hampshire football players asked me if I would swab my cheek for the Be The Match marrow registry. It was easy, so I said sure. This February, I got a letter saying I had been matched with a patient in need of a marrow transplant. Would I have the time and dedication to support this patient by donating my own bone marrow, they asked? It was easy: I said sure.

With the money we raise, 100 more individuals will be added to the marrow registry. Each one means another chance that a patient in need will have a chance at life.

Who gets marrow transplants?

The primary recipients of marrow transplants are those fighting blood cancers. That includes leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. Every person has unique biological markers and requirements of their marrow, and that is why a marrow registry needs as much variety as possible in its donors.
