40 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 6 - March 12, 1998 Marrow a, )r ation could help in L00.00we va)man&apos;s cancer recoveJ y Lewes resident April Beauchamp, recently diagnosed with lymphoma, a form of cancer, is currently being treated at Chris- tiana Medical Center, but her best chance for recovering from her ill- ness is a bone marrow transplant. Currently, no one from her fam- ily has been a perfect match, and Beauchamp must now seek a donor through the National Mar- row Donor Program (NMDP) reg- istry. Local residents may help in three ways: becoming a volunteer marrow donor; contributing funds for testing; and encouraging fami- ly, friends and co-workers to join the effort. A bone marrow recruitment drive will be held Wednesday, March 11, from noon to 6 p.m., at Groome United Methodist Church, Dewey Avenue and Savannah Road, Lewes. The Johns Hopkins Cancer Cen- ter will conduct the volunteer donor testing. Anyone between 18 and 60, in good health and with no history of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, heart attack or asthma may become a donor. The donor process is neither dif- ficult nor painful. Donors give two tablespoons of blood for a simple blood test. Information from the test will be entered into the NMDP reg- istry. Because of recent medical improvements, donating marrow is quick, simple and involves min- imal risk and discomfort. Costs of the marrow donation are.charged to the recipient's insurance company. There is a fee for the initial blood testing, but funding and Beebe School of Nursing students earn scholarships The Beebe School of Nursing has announced the recipients of scholarships awarded to its enrolled students.
