Hundreds register as bone marrow donors in Clovis
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Lives may be saved thanks to an event held in the Valley on Saturday.
Hundreds of people showed up at the Clovis Veterans Memorial Building to register as bone marrow donors.
Participants spent a few minutes filling out forms before having their cheeks swabbed.
Organizers say four children from the central valley are among the thousands in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant. But six out of ten patients do not get transplants because they can't find matches.
This was the second of a two-day donor drive, but if you'd still like to register, you can request a free at-home testing kit through getswabbed.org.
