Bone Marrow Drive

We interrupt our Ohio State stuport for a quick public service announcement:

The village(s) of York is/are holding a blood marrow drive to help York High School senior Jason Durkin. He was just diagnosed with aplastic anemia.
The marrow drive is being held at First Parish Church (click link for a map to the church) on Wednesday January 10 from 4-8 pm.
Registration is $52.00 for each participant. The senior class has donated $2,000 (proceeds from their last, Kiwanss is paying for 50 people to take the test, the York Rotary has donated $1,000 to help offset the costs for those who can donate but can't cover the cost of the test.
Aplastic anemia is a condition that causes the bone marrow to stop producing enough red blood cells. Maybe if you're in the area, you'd stop and donate.
