FF Jimmy Martinez of the FDNY needs a stem cell transplant. His World Trade Center-related multiple myeloma has outlasted 5 rounds of chemotherapy.
There will be a bone marrow donor drive for FF Martinez at Hopkins Hall of Our Lady Queen of Peace Roman Catholic Church on Staten Island on Sunday, June 8, 2014 from 8:00am to 2:00pm.
Potential donors need a 5-minute visit, involving a cheek swab to see if they match someone in need of a transplant. The drive is run by Delete Blood Cancer.
If a match is identified, the potential donor will be contacted and given a choice about donating – donations can be made either via peripheral blood stem cell donation or marrow donation.
