Bone Marrow Drive For SCV Teen

Bone Marrow drive set for Saturday, August 19th.

Kendyl Biby is a local Santa Clarita 15 year old that has Fanconi’s Anemia. The only cure as of date is a marrow transplant. She does not have a match.

The purpose of this drive is to get more people registered on the National Marrow Donor List. The cost is usually $52 for a person to register. The Red Cross is picking up the cost for those that register at this drive, thus the blood drive is included. The Red Cross is in desperate need for blood.

The Drive will take place at “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints”
