Organized by: Jordan Emerson
EVENT DATE Jun 27, 2015
To Sally Rosenthal Tor's many friends and family (and friends of friends and family!) As many of you know, Sally has bravely been fighting lymphoma and will likely need to undergo a stem cell or bone marrow transplant. As her friends looking for a way to support this amazing woman, we would like to help her find a match!
We are inviting YOU to come to Congregation Chaverim
5901 E. Second St. Tucson, Arizona 85711 on Saturday, June 27th from 9:00 am until 11:00 am to get tested to see if you are a match for Sally! It only takes a couple of minutes and involves a simple cheek swab. Anyone in good general health between the ages of 18 and 55 can register.
If that does not include you, YOU CAN STILL HELP! We'd greatly appreciate donations to cover the costs associated with testing the swabs. If we are able to cover these costs the lab can get Sally the results that much faster!
In order to get as many people tested as possible, we are not asking potential donors to cover the cost of their individual lab tests. There is a $65 cost for each swab to be tested at the lab. That means we need donations to make sure that the cost is covered to help Sally find a match! Please give what you can-- whether you can cover part of a lab test or many! Any additional funds raised will be donated to Gift of Life to help other patients seeking a donor.
And, of course, bagels will be provided! Think of it as a Shabbat oneg. Although Chaverim will not be holding services that day, we will still be coming together as a Congregation and community to support Sally.
If you are not in Tucson or cannot come to the swab party, you can still be tested! Follow this link (check back-- available soon!)
and select "Support Sally" to have a kit mailed to you.
