Rocky Mountain Rivals Working Together to Save Lives; Event Tonight!

Former Rapids M/D Seth Trembly and the Colorado Rush invite you to come join a life saving event tonight at Pinehurst Country Club as they team up with DKMS, the largest bone marrow donor center in the world, to hold a bone marrow donor drive.

The drive will be held in honor of Marcia Williams, wife of Real Salt Lake’s Andy Williams.

In May of 2008, Marcia found out that her blood counts were very low. On July 3, 2008, they received the terrible news that it was Leukemia. Marcia has AML6 and we now know that the only chance to survive is a bone marrow transplant.

The bone marrow donor drive will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. tonight during the World Cup of Wine Tasting and Silent Auction event sponsored by the Colorado Rush Soccer Club, in the Pinehurst Country Club, at 6255 W Quincy Ave, Denver, Colo.

No special invitation or fee is needed to register as a bone marrow donor and registering to become a bone marrow donor is quick and easy.

It is crucial that we find that match to save Marcia’s life and we urge everyone to attend the event.
