Help Needed For Bone Marrow Transplant

This is late news. But it’s important.

You might even say: life-saving.

Tomorrow (Wednesday, December 7, 12 noon to 2 p.m.), New Beauty Wellness in Westport (1137 Post Road East) is hosting a bone marrow drive.

Staples High School graduate Rachel Sanfilippo needs a bone marrow transplant. Her sister Neva can donate — but she’s only a half match. Hopefully, a better match can be found.

The test is free, painless, and takes only 30 seconds for a mouth swab. Anyone between the ages of 18 and 60 can be tested.

Because of the late notice, you may not be able to get there. If you’d like, click here for a free swabbing kit. Shipping and a return label are included.
