CHAZ JOHNSON TEAMS WITH NATIONAL MARROW DONOR PROGRAM

The Binghamton Senators are proud to announce that right-winger Chaz Johnson has teamed with the National Marrow Donor Program as a local spokesperson. 
 
Johnson will participate in the first local community-wide bone marrow drive specifically appealing to members of the African American community on Monday, Jan. 19 from 5 to 6 p.m. at the First Congressional Church, corner of Main and Front Streets in Binghamton. The drive, sponsored by the William G. Pomeroy Foundation and the National Marrow Donor Program, is slated to be part of the Martin Luther King Celebration.   
 
On any given day, more than 6,000 men, women and children are searching the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) Registry for a life-saving donor like you. These patients have leukemia, lymphoma and other life-threatening diseases that can be treated by a bone marrow or cord blood transplant. For many of these patients, a transplant may be the best and only hope of a cure. However, minorities are underrepresented on the registry.  In particular, Black and African American patients have the lowest likelihood of finding a matched donor.  Of the 7 million people on the registry, only 8% are Black or African American, and the most likely match is someone of your same race.
 
The William G. Pomeroy Foundation was founded by Bill Pomeroy, founder and CEO of CXtec, after his own diagnosis of Leukemia in 2004.  Since his successful stem cell transplant in May 2005, Pomeroy has dedicated his time and resources to funding programs specific to blood cancers.
