Football Matters: Delaware Football Program Saves Lives Through Bone Marrow Donations

National Football Foundation

Click here to read more about Delaware’s bone marrow drive.

In the fall, the Delaware Blue Hens are looking to win football games. In the spring, they’re looking to save lives.

The program, along with the University of Delaware Student Nurses Association, recently hosted the seventh annual “Be The Match” bone marrow registry drive. The process of registering takes about 20 minutes and includes filling out paperwork and a cheek swab. Bone marrow donation can help save the lives of patients with life-threatening blood cancers.

Chuck is happy to be a part of the group of writers that are helping to bring footballmatters.org to life, for his latest feature Chuck wrote about Delaware’s work in the community.
