Bone-marrow donation event is this weekend

Citizen Staff Report

Tucsonans are invited to help save lives by registering to donate bone marrow this weekend, a news release from the National Marrow Donor Program says.

Registration, which takes about 10 minutes, will be from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday at the Randolph Golf Club’s Copper Room, 600 S. Alvernon Way.

Each year, life-threatening illnesses such as leukemia and lymphoma are diagnosed in more than 35,000 people, many of whom could benefit from bone marrow donations, the release said.

Donors should be 18 to 60 years old and have no history of cancer, heart disease, lung or respiratory illness, diabetes, serious back conditions or high-risk behaviors.

For more information, visit the program’s site at www.marrow.org.



Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
