USF students in search of bone marrow donor

Tampa, FL – Last week, at the University of South Florida's Marshall Student Center, members of Col.S.A. (Colombian Student Association) and The Icla da Silva Foundation held a bone marrow drive for leukemia patients. Accoring to USF, the drive was focused on a young boy, Santiago, who has leukemia and is awaiting a suitable donor.

During the USF event, students registered as bone marrow donors throughout the day. Col.S.A. members discussed how someone can be a registered marrow donor. The Icla da Silva Foundation's recruitment specialist Mauricio Murillo spoke about how this event came to USF and how anyone can help this cause.

Although this particular event has passed, the Icla da Silva Foundation continues to pursue educating and inspiring potential bone marrow donors in the community. For more information go to www.icla.org.
