Sharing America's Marrow, or S.A.M. is a Year-long, Nationwide Bone Marrow Drive


Organized by an aplastic anemia patient, Sam Kimura,  her sister, and their friend, the project will begin in January 2015. Their goal is to register at least 50,000 donors in 50 states in 2015. With this effort, thousands of lives could be saved because matches will be found for those patients in need. 


Learn more about this project - and in what cities their bone marrow drive will be in - by visiting their website.  www.sharingamericasmarrow.com
