From Suzanne Brockmann’s site:
A Navy SEAL named Justin, who was featured on the Discovery Channelâ€™s series â€œNavy SEALs: BUD/s Class 234,â€ was just diagnosed with cancer. He needs to find a bone marrow donor ASAP. They did screenings at Spotswood High School in Spotswood, NJ last Saturday from 9am-5pm, but from what I’ve heard, they still haven’t found a match.
Here’s a link to an article about Justin’s situation.
Here’s an article with a photo.
The reader who brought this to my attention wrote the following to me:
As far as I know, no match has been found yet. The more people that we can all reach out to, the better his chances areâ€¦.and also for the others waiting for donorsâ€¦
This is the info they gave for those who want to help:
– If you can organize a drive in your area at a police or fire station or at a school, please call Eddy at 800-627-7693 ext 223. He is at the Department of Defense Bone Marrow Donor program (the people in charge of the drive for Justin on Saturday)
– If you cannot visit an area donation center or a local drive, but still want to help, you can use this link to have a test kit sent to you. (it is a simple â€œswab inside of cheekâ€ test. They ask for a $52.00 donation to cover costs. www.marrow.org
– All potential donors are listed on the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry. Itâ€™s simple and quick and could potentially save Justinâ€™s or someone elseâ€™s life.
