Offers free swab to join national bone marrow registry
Dr. Richard Jeruzal’s office, Cedar Rock Dental Care, is participating in the “Take a bite out of cancer” campaign to create the state’s single largest bone marrow drive and raise funds to support blood cancer research.
“Since more than 5,100 patients in Michigan—and more than one million nationwide—are waiting for a bone marrow transplant, I want to do my part to help add potential donors to the registry,” he said.
“During the month of May, patients and other members of the community are invited to come to my office to participate in the “Take a bite out of cancer” campaign. My entire dental team is excited about the campaign and stands ready to welcome participants to our office.”
Please call (616) 866-4461 to schedule a time for your free oral swab.
All that is needed to join the fight against cancer is a willingness to do a simple, self-administered cheek swab and complete a basic medical information form.
The doctor added, “With the link between oral health and overall health, it’s a natural fit for dentists to participate in this important project.”
The campaign is co-sponsored by the Michigan Dental Association and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Michigan.
