Bone Marrow Drive For Wallie Berry

On Nov. 15, from 1-6 p.m. there will be a bone marrow drive for Wallie Berry. He is in need of a bone marrow transplant due to a disease that he has been fighting for the past 6 years called MDS or myelodysplastic syndrome. He does not yet have a matching donor. Be The Match® will be coming to New England Wire Technologies in Lisbon, N.H., to conduct a drive in hopes of finding a match for Wallie. The test for finding a donor is a simple swab of the cheek. It is pain free and you could save a life.

Wallie has lived in the Lisbon community his entire life and is one of the most generous individuals you will ever meet. He has donated much of his time, services, and money to various community causes, most recently the Lions Club Community Pool project. He owns a school bus transportation business that accommodates thousands of our local children as well as a sand and gravel business. He has been honored for his generosity. He is a very humble man however, and certainly not accustomed to someone doing something special for him.

You may also contribute by purchasing a bracelet in honor of Wallie and to support Be The Match® foundation. These bracelets are available at P&D Quick Stop in Lisbon.

There is no greater gift than giving. You could be the one to give the gift of life to such a wonderful person. Please take four minutes of your time to donate to a worthwhile cause. Whether you are the perfect match for Wallie or not, by donating your swab, you could be the match for someone else in need.
