Bone Marrow donor logoThe Bone Marrow Donor Registry of Hawaii is seeking volunteers to help at its registration booth at the upcoming Maui Fair.  Volunteers are needed 3 1/2- to 4-hour shifts on October 2-5.

“Cancer and other diseases have touched most of our lives. When we volunteer to help others, we are encouraging others to help us and ours. Please consider giving this small amount of time to the fight,” said Lynn Araki-Regan who is coordinating the volunteer recruitment.

To volunteer by signing up for a shift, contact Araki-Regan at 280-1299 or lynn@araki-regan.com.

Hawaii Bone Marrow Donor Registry is a non-profit organization established in 1989 in Honolulu, Hawaii.  The Registry is affiliated with the National Marrow Donor Program, which is also known as the Be The Match® Registry.  Hawaii Bone Marrow Donor Registry is one of several donor centers around the world, but the only Donor Registry in the State in Hawaii. 

Because matches are generally found within the same ethnicity, the Registry provides a valuable resource to the State’s multi-ethnic population and the patients the Registry serves. 

Hawaii Bone Marrow Donor Registry has facilitated over 350 bone marrow and stem cell collections for patients in Hawaii and all over the world.  Donors stay on the Registry from the time they register until age 61.  The Registry currently manages over 78,000 donors.
