Please register for Robert Passananti's bone marrow drive

Help me if you can
The Beatles

This is an abbreviation of the post written (at 4:54AM!) by his wife, Hardip, from my friend Robert Passananti's caringbridge blog:

As Hardip explains, all it is is a cheek swab and you could save a life. Robert is still looking for a donor that is a good match and sooner would be better than later. Robert is another CLLer with very young children.

You can also call City of Hope at 626 471-7171 and they can do the swab or you can even do it through the mail. Read on, please, and as Dr Laura would say: Do the right thing.

Hi everyone! Hardip here. Robert and I constantly joke that between his “chemo brain” and my “mommy brain” we don’t have much chance of engaging in an intelligent conversation.However, we did manage to muster together the thought that we could post the bone marrow drive info on this site. So, here it is:

So, come on out and bring your family, friends and neighbors. This only requires a cheeck swab - no needles. :)

If you can't make the drive but would like to register, you can register online at: - you'll receive the kit in the mail. Please make note of the ID number you're given. Registering only requires a swab of your cheek and some paperwork - no needles! Imagine, you could be the one to save someone’s life – what a gift.
