Medical City McKinney and Be the Match Registry to hold Marrow Donor Registry Event

Medical City McKinney September 22, 2017

On Tuesday, friends and family of Paetyn Wood are hosting a Swab4Paetyn-marrow donor registry event to raise awareness about the need for bone marrow donors, and to perhaps find a matching donor for 6-year-old Paetyn and many other patients like her.

McKinney area residents ages 18-44 can take the first step to save a life by joining the Be The Match Registry between 4 – 8 p.m. on Tuesday, September 26 at Medical City McKinney, 4500 Medical Center Drive, Classroom 3-4, using a simple check swab.

Patients are most likely to match someone of their own race or ethnicity, and doctors request donors in the 18-44 age group more than 90 percent of the time. More people of diverse racial and ethnic heritage are needed now to help patients searching for a match.

Get swabbed. You could save a life.
