Bone Marrow Registry DRIVE

March 24, 2017 at Compass Lexecon in Chicago.


Are YOU ready to save a life? Every 3 minutes, someone is diagnosed with blood cancer or illness that need a lifesaving transplant. 70% of patients don’t have a family match and depend on the national bone marrow registry to find a match! Donating bone marrow is free of risks, and usually painless.

Please join us Sunday, December 4th at Pablo’s Mexican Restaurant in Crystal Lake for a #MarrowMeCara and #bethematch bone marrow donor registry drive.

Registering to be a donor is safe/ easy, and only requires a swab of the mouth with a Q-tip. Registering takes about 10 minutes. Being a bone marrow donor is an important commitment, so please make sure to read below for more details.
Here’s what you need to know to register:
– Ages 18-44
– Willing to Donate and save the life of *anyone* in the registry
– 1 in 480 registered donors go on to donate
– Free Registration
-In general, must be free of any personal history of certain types of cancer, insulin-dependent diabetes or heart disease, but each registrant will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis
-Able to provide personal information/ detailed medical history including medications
If you are identified as a match…

Bone marrow transplants are quite simple and painless for the donor.

-A 30 to 40 hour time commitment is required and spread over a four to six week period to attend appointments and donate.

-About 80% of the time, donation only requires Peripheral blood stem cell donation, which is a non-surgical procedure (similar to donating blood).

-About 20% of the time, actual marrow is required where a small amount of liquid marrow is withdrawn from the back of the pelvic bone while under anesthesia. The body regenerates within 3-6 weeks.

-After either procedure, the donor is back to full capacity after a few days. The biggest complaint is a little achiness after the procedure. That’s all it takes to save a life.

About #MarrowMeCara
Cara is a 2013 DePaul graduate who has been teaching in South Korea for the past 3 years. After a few months of not feeling well, her ankles swelled up and she lost all energy to do basic everyday tasks. Soon after a checkup at the doctor, Cara was diagnosed with a bone marrow failure disease called APLASTIC ANEMIA. It’s a rare disorder where your bone marrow doesn’t produce enough blood cells and attacks itself. The only cure for Aplastic Anemia is a bone marrow transplant.

Cara has moved back to Chicago and is preparing for treatment. Unfortunately, Cara is like 70% of other patients and does not have a transplant match in her family.

Marrow Me Cara” was created by Cara and her family to raise awareness about bone marrow diseases, the importance of joining the registry, and to dismantle the fear of becoming a donor. Please join us!

Can’t make it, but want to help???
That’s okay! You can help in these ways…

Soup & Bread March 1

March 01, 2017 at The Hideout in Chicago.


Our February 22 Soup & Bread was our most successful yet, at least in terms of donations, with over $1000 raised in one evening. Not to mention the seemingly endless supply of cookies, brownies, and PIE. We’ve got five weeks left in this soup season — let’s see if we can keep the funds flowing!

Meanwhile, the soup is spreading. On February 12 Liz Mills and Carlson Community Services held its annual Soup & Bread in Chicago’s Old Irving Park neighborhood, and on the 20th, out in Seattle, friend-of-Soup-&-Bread Suzie Strait hosted a dinner to raise money for the Refugee Women’s Alliance, and over in Michigan, Soup & Bread: Traverse City is going strong. And now we hear that, coming up March 7, a whole mess of fancy Chicago chefs are teaming up for Solidarity Soup — a fundraiser for a trio of Chicago nonprofits supporting the city’s immigrant workers.

We are thrilled by the sudden flood of soup-driven goodwill (and money), and in that spirit of solidarity invited one of those fancy chefs to join us on the line at Soup & Bread this week — so come out and welcome Paul Fehribach from Big Jones to his first-ever Soup & Bread!

Joining Paul are Molly Schemper and cooks from Slow Food Chicago, Jamee Warrenfeltz and cooks from Near North Montessori, Deborah Lamberty, and another pot of goodness from our friends at Local Foods. Our DJ this week is Stan Wood, our bread — as ever — is from Publican Quality Bread, and our partner organization is actually a twofer — reps from both Teen Living Programs and Northside Housing and Supportive Services will be in the house.

Thanks all. See you so soon.
