More Bone Marrow Drives Planned

EUGENE, Ore. — There’s been an overwhelming response to help a 5-month-old baby in Eugene who needs a life-saving surgery, and more bone marrow drives have been scheduled to try to find a bone marrow match.

Baby Harlow is battling a rare life threatening disease that’s only cure is a bone marrow transplant.

Wednesday night, more than than 200 people showed up at the Umpqua Bank in the Oakway Center in hopes they could be the match. So many people wanted to help, they used all 200 testing kits in an hour. So more drives are planned at Umpqua Bank branches.

They’ll happen Monday, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at these locations: Oakway Road in Eugene, 445 S.E. Main Street in Roseburg, and 25 E. Gibbs in Cottage Grove.

There’s also one in Salem on Commercial Street and in Albany on Southwest Ellsworth.
