Marines helping Marines

A station wide bone marrow donor registration drive will be held from July 9 to 13. The drive will help determine a possible marrow donor for Gunnery Sgt. Shane Lamont, with Marine Aviation Weapons and Tactics Squadron 1, who was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. Lamont wants Marines to remember, “no one knows your body better than you,” he stressed.

“If you feel like something is wrong get it checked,” he added. “Also, stay on top of your physical fitness and nutrition. It’s because I’m a Marine and I take care of myself that I am doing as well as I am.”

Representatives from each unit will receive training June 29 and will be available to collect samples within their units July 9 to 12. They will then bring their collected samples and assist with the public drive inside the station main exchange July 13 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Maximum participation in this drive is encouraged and appreciated. For more information, contact your unit representative or Sandra Rookey, MAWTS-1 Family Readiness Officer at (928) 269-6401.
