Swab to Save Kiera

"Swab to Save Kiera" - This drive is being held for Kiera Timmons, a 6-year-old resident of Palm Coast, that has relapsed leukemia. Kiera needs a bone marrow transplant to survive, and she currently does not have a match. They are looking for individuals between the ages of 18-44 that are in general good health and willing to donate to ANYONE. A simple cheek swab is all it takes to determine if you could be a match for a patient with no other options.

The event is being held on Friday, March 6th, from 6-9 pm, at the Flagler Beach First Friday.


If you are unable to stop by the table on March 6th, or if you do not live in the area, there is a special link for those who want to join the Registry in honor of Kiera. Go to http://join.bethematch.org/kiera to join. You'll fill out the consent form online and a swab kit will be mailed to your house. Just swab and send back! Easy! Don't wait....Kiera needs our help!

Have questions? Contact Jennifer Salah, Be the Match Representative, at 904-477-1850 or jsalah@nmdp.org.
