Bone Marrow Drive in Thousand Oaks
February 8, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Just two days before his 44th birthday, Darryl Weiss tested positive for acute myeloid leukemia (AML). To complicate matters, Darryl has a rare gene, which lowers the success rate of stand-alone chemotherapy treatments. This makes his diagnosed leukemia the worst of its type, and why a bone marrow transplant is such a critical part in his fight for a lasting cure to his disease.
Darryl does not have a matching donor on the bone marrow registry so his family is reaching out to the community to ask people to join the registry in honor of Darryl, in the hopes of finding him a match, and to help other patients who are searching for a potential match.
Be The Match will be at Temple Etz Chaim in Thousand Oaks on Sunday, February 8, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. to register individuals to join the bone marrow registry.
