Are You Jonathan’s Match?

We told you earlier about Jonathan Haupt, whose friends and family are trying to find a bone marrow match to save his life.  Team Haupt has held several marrow registry drives all over the country in the past several weeks, but they’re still looking for a match.  They’re coming to DC tomorrow and Thursday to register more people (particularly those of Jewish heritage, but all are welcome and needed), so if you can make it to either of these events please do.  Bring a friend or a co-worker and know that you’re doing your part to give hope to millions of people.  It only takes 10 minutes, and it’s a completely painless process that just involves a cheek swab.

Upcoming drives are Wednesday, 7/29 and Thursday, 7/30, 4:30 PM to 7:30 PM, at the JCC at 1529 16th Street NW.  Closest Metro stations are Dupont Circle and U Street.  Check out the website for more information.

Shannon grew up in the greater DC area/Maryland suburbs, went to Virginia for college and grad school (go Hoos!), and settled in DC in 2006. She’s an urban planner who loves transit (why yes, that is her dressed as a Metro pylon for Halloween), cities, and all things DC. Email her at Shannon (at)!
