Reds hosting bone marrow drive on Feb. 22

The Reds are hosting a donor drive to support the Be The Match foundation and Chris Herrell, a Reds employee who is battling a rare form of blood cancer. The drive is taking place on Friday, February 22 at the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum, from 11AM to 6PM. All you have to do is show up, fill out a questionnaire, and get the inside of your mouth swabbed. That's it.

I can't stress how important this kind of stuff is. It's not the same kind of thing where they need a blood type match, they need a very specific tissue match, and there's no one to help Chris out in their registry. Help a fellow Redleg out. You have to be within the ages of 18-44 to donate, and if you're in the area, I strongly encourage you to stop by. See you guys there.
