Hawks to Host Project Life Bone Marrow Drive February 1st ; Project Life    Allie Kolezynski
MURFREESBORO- The Chowan University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) in conjunction with Project Life and the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA), will host a bone marrow drive on February 1st from 11:00am-4:00pm in the Hawks Nest. 
SAAC will take the reins in the conference-wide initiative by recruiting the campus and community to support the drive. Project Life is a campus-based national marrow donor organization dedicated to finding and enlisting individuals as potential donors for bone marrow and tissue transplants. According to the Project Life website, "one of the best kept secrets in providing cures for cancers like leukemia and lymphoma and for diseases like sickle cell anemia has been bone marrow donation and transplantation." The Hawks join fellow member institutions in the CIAA in taking up this cause. Eighty-seven million people are registered organ donors in the United States, but just nine million are registered bone marrow donors. Three thousand people die each year while waiting for a bone-marrow treatment. It only takes one person to provide a life-saving miracle and cure for a patient. Archive
