This drive is in honor of Jonathan Barnes who was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia on December 6, 2016 and is in need of a bone marrow transplant. Jonathan is 19 years old and a freshman at the University of Louisville.
Owensboro Christian Church will be hosting a Best the Match drive for those interested in being tested to be a bone marrow donor for someone in need. The test is a very quick and simple swab taken from an individual’s cheek. Being tested in no way obligates anyone to donate, but may identify you as someone who could provide someone a life-saving marrow transplant.
Those tested must be in good health and be over the age of 18 but under the age of 44. If you cannot attend the drive you can still help by registering online at: join.bethematch.org/ABatch4kyone
