Bone Marrow Screening Event to be held Monday, March 11 at Lavo NYC for Wendy Siegel, wife of industry leader Steve Siegel
NEW YORK CITY (MARCH 2013) – In coordination with LAVO and the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Registry, a Bone Marrow Screening/Search will be held on behalf of Wendy Siegel on Monday, March 11, 2013 at LAVO from 6:00pm to 8:30pm. LAVO is located at 39 East 58th Street between Park and Madison Avenues. Wendy Siegel is the wife of Steve Siegel, Chairman, Global Brokerage at CBRE. She is battling leukemia.
Bone marrow compatibility testing is fast and painless, determined by a saliva sample taken by swiping the inside of the cheek with a cotton swab. Eligible donors must be between the ages of 18-60 and in general good health. The testing seeks to enroll as many eligible donors as possible to find a perfect match for Wendy.
In addition to participating in the bone marrow screening, there are other ways in which you can help:
- Make a contribution to help offset the laboratory testing cost. Each test is $60 per donor.
- You can also order an at-home cheek swab kit from Gift of Life by registering online at www.giftoflife.org/register.
- For more information about becoming a donor, visit: www.giftoflife.org or call the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Registry at 1-800-9MARROW.
Please note that those of you who participated in previous blood and bone marrow testing need not volunteer again, as you are already in the worldwide registry but as friends of the Siegel’s feel free to come and join us for a drink at LAVO.
Thank you and Kindly RSVP ASAP to Dolores Capone at Dolores.Capone@cbre.com
