Deb Moyer has Myelodysplastic Syndrome, known as MDS. Her bone marrow does not make enough healthy blood cells and there are abnormal cells in her blood. She will need a bone marrow transplant.
Moyer is lucky because two of her brothers are a match. But she says not everyone is so lucky. From her bed at Wilmot Cancer Center, Moyer organized a bone marrow drive.
The event is Tuesday, October 29 at Cosgrove Middle School from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Donors get their cheeks swabbed. They must be 18 to 44 years old and in general good health. There will be entertainment at the event.
