Be the Match donor registry to be held Nov. 20

Noah was born to a Londonderry couple on Feb. 26, 2017 after a routine pregnancy and delivery.

At 3.5 months old, he was diagnosed with a rare genetic bone disease called osteopetrosis – a condition that can be fatal if not treated with a bone marrow or stem cell transplant.

Thanks to Be The Match, a perfect donor was found, and at just 5 months old, Noah received a life-saving transplant.

Others like Noah are in desperate need of a transplant. Could you be the match that saves a life? You are invited to drop into the Be The Match donor registry drive at Neighborhood Connections between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 20.

Neighborhood Connections is located in Londonderry’s Mountain Marketplace, next to the U.S. Post Office.
