MidState Medical Center & Holiday Cinemas Stadium Partner for Bone Marrow Drive

March 04, 2013

What if you could save someone's life? Did you know that approximately 70% of people who need a bone marrow transplant do not have a matching donor in their family? MidState Medical Center and Holiday Cinema Stadium in Wallingford invite you to watch a free screening of the moving and inspirational documentary More To Live For, a film that tells the story of three people, all shaken by cancer and dependent upon one vital bone marrow match that could save their lives.

These men are similar in both their fate and their extraordinary personal achievements: Michael Brecker, 15 time Grammy winner, one of the greatest tenor saxophonists of all time; James Chippendale, entertainment executive and founder of The Love Hope Strength Foundation; and Seun Adebiyi, a young law student training to become the first Nigerian Winter Olympic athlete in any sport. This award winning film has traveled the film festival circuit and we are pleased to show a free screening for one night only on Thursday, Apr. 11 at 7:00 p.m. at the Holiday Cinema Stadium located at 970 North Colony Road, Wallingford.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet the film's producer and learn more about becoming a bone marrow donor (including dispelling some myths that it is a painful process!), as well as add their name to the national bone marrow registry with a simple cheek swab. Designated volunteers will be on hand that evening to assist with getting movie-goers to the free screening. For more information or questions, please call 203.694.8631. You won't want to miss this!
