Delete Blood Cancer DKMS, a global organization that is leading the fight to eradicate blood cancer, will hold a bone marrow registration drive in Tampa on Tuesday.
Florida Blue is supporting a 1,000 mile bike tour called RYDE Florida to help in the fight against blood cancers. The bike tour and bone marrow registrations are taking place at nine Florida Blue centers across the state.
The registration process to become a potential bone marrow donor is very simple. All that is needed is a simple cheek swab that takes less than five minutes.
A potential donor will be contacted if they are determined to be a possible match for more tests.
You can register to be a donor from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Florida Blue Center at 201 N. West Shore Boulevard in Tampa.
