Bone Marrow Drive In Longview

A Longview volunteer group held a drive to find matches for life saving bone marrow today at the Longview Mall.

"Because I Care" is an international program that was started in Longview. Their goal is to find bone marrow donors for those suffering from leukemia and other devastating diseases. Local volunteers held a tissue typing drive. By getting just a small amount of blood from a fingertip, volunteers can look for possible matches with someone in need of a life saving transplant of bone marrow.
