Bone Marrow Drive: As many of you are aware, sixth grade teacher Teddy Bolton’s husband, Miles, is scheduled for a bone marrow transplant later this month. There is not a lot we can do for Teddy and Miles at this time. However, in Miles’s honor, we are running a bone marrow drive at the high school on November 21. Miles was lucky enough to find an almost perfect match through the international registry, and it is his wish that we help others in the same situation.
Attached is information about the drive. In addition to the drive, we are trying to raise money to help offset the cost of adding donors to the registry. See the flyer for details. Please go to the following attachments: Bone Marrow Flyer Front, Bone Marrow Flyer Back
