Bone marrow donors, supporters can reach out for Dalzell's Bernabei

NT Staff

DALZELL — After battling blood cancer and being in remission several times, former Dalzell firefighter and current Dalzell fire board president Dave Bernabei recently learned his lymphoma has returned. He in need of a marrow cell transplant, but to get the transplant he will need to find a match.

His supporters, Team Dave, have planned a Be The Match registration event 2-7 p.m. Wednesday at the Dalzell fire station,402 Lucy St., in an effort to add more people, ages 18-44, to the potential marrow donation registry and give patients like Bernabei a chance to find a matching donor.

“Not in that age range?” reads a plea at the TEAM Dave website ( “Please consider coming and making a tax-deductible contribution so we can thank you in person! Everyone who joins on 8/21/13 will have their tissue typing expedited to see if they match Dave and then they will be placed on the national registry. Even if you don’t match Dave you could match a patient just like him and save their life.”

Be The Match manages the largest and most diverse donor registry — more than 10.5 million marrow donors and nearly 185,000 cord blood units.
