Help a 27 year old beat cancer

Elissa Froman, 27, lovingly called "Lissy" by her friends has beaten cancer twice.

With your help, she will beat Hodgkins Lymphoma a third time.

I've written a lot about signing up for the Bone Marrow Registry, and maybe you didn't have time or just had too much on your mind.

Don't worry. You have another chance to save someone's life and be treated to brunch if you live in the Chicago area. To sign up, all you do is fill out a form and get your cheek swabbed. It takes about 10 minutes including filling out the form. How slow you eat your breakfast depends on you. If you have any questions contact Beverly Agdern or 773-807-2388.

When: May 23
Time: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Place: Anshe Shalom
540 West Melrose Street

Chicago, IL 60657-3752
(773) 248-9200
