Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center hosted the Armenian Bone Marrow Donor Registry (ABMDR) Walk of Life on Saturday.

According to the ABMDR website, the registry seeks to save lives by taking bone marrow donors and connecting them with a match who needs their support. Donors have to be between the ages of 18 and 50, and in good general health. To register, potential donors are asked to fill out a form with contact information and a brief medical history and provide a tissue sample (a few swabs from the inside of the cheek). Once the sample is analyzed and the tissue type determined, the information is filed in the registry computer.
