This Saturday, DKMS joins forces with “Extreme Home Makeover: Home Edition” and Major League Soccer in a nationwide search to find a bone marrow match for 7-year-old Jonah Gomez, who suffers from blood cancer and needs a bone marrow transplant to survive. For those who don’t know, DKMS, the world’s largest bone-marrow donor center, will be holding donor drives for soccer fanatic Jonah this Saturday at Major League Soccer games in seven cities across the U.S.
Soccer fans who plan on attending the Gold Cup Final (U.S. vs. Mexico) on Saturday will have the opportunity to get swabbed at no charge, in the hopes of finding a match for Jonah. Getting swabbed is a quick and easy test that involves nothing more than filling out a form and wiping a treated q-tip in your mouth. Those who can’t go to the match but want to help Jonah can register with DKMS online at GetSwabbed.org. Please consider signing up even if you can’t make the game. And if you’ve got tickets to the game, lucky you—it’s going to be great!
