A bone marrow registry drive is going on Wednesday, August 14, 2013 in Clinton, Iowa.

For thousands of patients with diseases like leukemia and lymphoma, a marrow transplant from an unrelated donor is their best or only hope for a cure.

The donor registry drive is Wednesday from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Medical Associate West Annex building, 931 13th Avenue North in Clinton.

Friends and family of Clinton area Terry Adolph are hosting the event. Adolph, of Chadwick, IL, was diagnosed in October 2009 with follicular lymphoma.

To find out if you could be a match, a potential donor just has to take a simple mouth swab. Donors will be entered into a Nationwide database.

Even if you are not a match for Terry Adolph, you could be a life saver for someone else.

There is no fee to donate, if you are under age 45. Persons 45 to 60 may be tested at a fee. All donations are welcome, whether or not you qualify as a donor.

To offset expenses for the test kits, there will be a bake sale and silent auction at the registry drive.  All proceeds will go to Be The Match Registry.
