Bone Marrow Donor Drive for Franklin Native at YMCA

Jennifer Felicetti is a loving wife, mother and friend originally from Franklin who was recently diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). While she is currently undergoing aggressive treatment, her doctors believe Jennifer's best shot will likely be a bone marrow transplant. With no matching donors in her family, Jennifer will be forced to enter the nerve-wracking search for an unrelated donor. Jennifer's supporters in Franklin have teamed up with Delete Blood Cancer DKMS to host a bone marrow registration drive in her honor, hoping to register more potential matches for her and other patients in need. The event will take place on Saturday, Feb. 6, from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the Franklin YMCA at 45 Forge Hill Road, Franklin. Most 18-55 year-olds in good health are eligible to donate, and all it takes is a registration form and a simple swab of the inside cheek. If you cannot make it to the drive, you can visit for more information and to register.
