NYC - Bone Marrow Registry Drive for Kieran Holohan

One of my fellow Lions and good friend to many in the rugby community, Kieran Holohan, 42, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia on December 9 2009. His Leukemia is temporarily in remission, but he will need a Bone Marrow Transplant in order to survive in the long term.

The Village Lions have organized a Bone Marrow registry drive on Saturday January 23 at the Cornerstone Tavern in Manhattan to raise money for the important DNA testing but more importantly to find bone marrow matches for potential donors. The cheek scrape test will be conducted at the event and takes less than 10 seconds. Its a small price to pay out help a rugger in need.

Full details of the event and other ways you can help if you are unable to attend can be found at http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=237950897590
