It only takes a second to be swabbed for the bone marrow test and you might save a life. Then stay for some amazing horror shorts by women filmmakers.
Viscera and WiHM Love Women and Horror Right Down to the Bone
In association with Cella Art Gallery, Femme Fatale Art Show, and City of Hope, the Viscera organization will be rolling out the bloody carpet in North Hollywood, California on February 25th to host a charity bone marrow swab registration to cap off our 2012 celebration of Women in Horror Recognition Month. Come out to support and help raise awareness about bone marrow donation through the City of Hope organization.
Right now, someone in your own organization or community may have a life-threatening illness that is so critical the only hope for a cure is a bone marrow transplant.
Finding a matching marrow donor is not always easy, or even possible. There simply aren’t enough viable donors registered. Currently, only 2 out of 10 of those suffering from diseases like leukemia, lymphoma and other life-threatening diseases ever get the treatment that could save their lives.
You can help change that.
The Be The Match Registry at City of Hope is working diligently to diversify our Registry of bone marrow donors in order to help more patients find lifesaving bone marrow matches. When you join the Be The Match Marrow Registry, you can save a life. Every day thousands of patients need a life-saving transplant and are in search of a donor. With only 30% finding a suitable donor within their family, the remaining 70% must reach out to unrelated donors whose tissue type matches. Even with the Registry of millions there are still patients waiting and hoping to find that match. That’s where you can help. Come to the Viscera Marrow Event and be swabbed and registered by City of Hope. You could save a life.
This event is FREE but please RSVP to either the facebook event page or email Stacy Pippi Hammon at email@example.com. It will include a very special screening of “Ingrid Pitt: Beyond the Forest”. This was the last project Hammer horror icon Ingrid Pitt made, narrating her own story for a short animated film by an 11 year old boy, Perry Chen, under the mentorship of cartoonist Bill Plympton.
Marrow will also provide a carpet walk, food, open bar, femme fatale-inspired art, and a screening of horror films by women. Do it for charity. Do it for Women in Horror Month.
This event is sponsored by the new horror series Holliston, premiering on FEARnet April 3rd, 2012.
