In 2016 at the DKMS Gala I had the honor of meeting and working with Chondra Profit Ardrey from Lion King. She had matched during a prior blood match drive and her donation saved the life of a young boy thousands of miles away in Brazil.
Today she and other stars of Broadway are organizing a new drive to find new matches in the community.
Broadway Match Maker
When: Wednesday, June 27
4:30 – 7:00
What: Cheek swab drive – simple 2 min cheek swab to enter you in DKMS database for bone marrow donation.
Where: Samuel Friedman Health Clinic – Run by the Actors Fund
Why: The database is not a representation of the community and there is a need for the diversity of Broadway to spearhead changing that.
Plus, free food and swag for the first 150 folk
Also, put it on your social media and be in the running to win a pair of tickets to Dear Evan Hansen.
One donor can change a life for the better.
