A Friend-raiser

Doubles Event 2013

The crowd at Doubles

We had a great turnout for our “Friend-raiser” on January 16, 2013. New and long-standing friends flocked to Doubles at the Sherry Netherland Hotel to enjoy drinks, delicious appetizers, and learn more about The Bone Marrow Foundation. After thanking Missey Condie and Sherri Grace for their tremendous work organizing the event, Christina Merrill, the Foundation’s Executive Director, spoke briefly about the mission of the organization and invited the audience to get involved, especially through Lifeline Project. Dr. Juliet Barker, Director of the Cord Blood Transplantation Program at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, provided the crowd with insight into the bone marrow transplant process and the struggles experienced by patients and their families.
