On May 9th, a Bone Marrow Donor Registry Drive was organized by The Department of Family Medicine on behalf of Simone Douglas, R.N. (Inpatient--16th Floor) who has been diagnosed with Acute T-cell Leukemia Lymphoma and is in need of a bone marrow transplant.

Family Medicine joined together with Delete Blood Cancer and Jenifer Daniel to recruit bone marrow donors for Ms. Douglas and others facing leukemia.  A total of 317 qualifying individuals registered and $712 was raised!

We would like to thank all who registered and volunteered toward this cause.  Please note, if you stillwish to register, you may contact Tanya Green at 718 901-8219.
