Reminder – Mackenzie Curran Needs Your Help

We posted this appeal earlier and we want to remind everyone about the clinic coming up on Saturday November 2 at St. John’s Church in Portsmouth being put on by One Match in support of Mackenzie Curran, a former player in our league. In August, MacKenzie was diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome, a disease which now requires her to undergo a bone marrow transplant. With no family match, MacKenzie is appealing for male donors 17-35 years old to register with OneMatch, an organization that is connected with Canada Blood Services, at a clinic to be held at St. John’s Anglican Church, 41 Church Street in Portsmouth. The clinic will be held on Saturday November 2 from noon until 4 pm. By registering with OneMatch, you could be a hero to MacKenzie, or to one of the other 700 + Canadians that are in need of a bone marrow or stem cell transplant. We encourage anyone interested to please visit the One Match web site to understand the process and to be informed.
If you can’t make it to that clinic, there are others in the area, including at Queen’s, where they will be having a “One Match” drive on November 29th in the Biosciences Atrium from 9am-5pm and ARC from 9am-4pm. Please help if you can. Thanks in advance.
