Amy's Army & Charity Bar Crawl

I have seen posters for Amy’s Army before but I wasn’t really sure what this is all about.  I had the opportunity to meet some of the volunteers from Amy’s Army this evening at Discover Pittsburgh.  Amy is a 15 year old girl from Mt. Lebanon – she was diagnosed with Leukemia about 5 years ago but they have not found a bone marrow match.  Amy’s Army is a group of volunteers who are working to get more people registered with the national bone marrow registry.

Getting registered is easy – it is a swab of your cheek and the kit can be sent right to your home or you can get registered when you give blood.

You can also support Amy’s Army by joining their Charity Bar Crawl this Saturday, May 17, 2008.  The bar crawl is just $10 and everything benefits Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
