Stem Cell/Bone Marrow Donor Drive

On Sep 30th, University Servants' Day, the FHU Dept of Nursing, in conjunction with Earl Young's Team and DKMS, will conduct a donor drive to increase the number of potential donors for stem-cell and bone marrow transplants to delete blood cancers, such as leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma.

In Henderson, there will be 3 donor collection sites on campus (Student Center, Brewer Sports Center, ARC150) and one in the community (Henderson Family Pharmacy, 535 West Main St). In Dickson, there will be 6 donor locations throughout the community. The drive will be conducted from 11:00-6:00pm.

  • Every 3 minutes an American is diagnosed with blood cancer.
  • Every year, over 50,000 people die from blood cancer in the U.S.
  • 70% of those suffering from blood cancers, approximately 14,000 each year, must rely on a benevolent stranger to step up and donate. Not everyone finds a match in their family.

The process is simple:

  • 5 minutes of time
  • 3 swabs of your cheeks
  • 1 life can be saved and changed forever

Please consider donating.  Be someone's benevolent stranger.

If you have any questions, please contact Chris White, 731.989.6034 or 731.437.9090.

Thank you.
