The Associated Students of Solano College will be holding the third semesterly bone marrow donor drive in conjunction with the Asian American Donor Program. The drive will be held on October 9th and 10th from 10am to 3pm at the 1400 building on the main Fairfield campus.
The ASSC was first approached in Fall 2012 by AADP Outreach Coordinator Thi Ly to find bone marrow donors for former Solano Community College student Kyle Lu, and has been determined to make the drive a tradition. To date, the ASSC AADP drive has signed up over 200 students as donors, and found two potential matches.
Registering as a donor is very easy and only takes a few minutes. Those interested in donating should be between 18 and 44 years of age, have appropriate ID, and be of general good health. Potential donors must fill out a short form and get their cheek swabbed.
