Galaxy, Chivas USA and The Home Depot Center to Host Bone Marrow Donor Drive

The Galaxy, Chivas USA and The Home Depot Center are joining forces to assist Marcia Williams, the wife of Real Salt Lake and Jamaican National Team midfielder Andy Williams, who has been diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia and has been unable to find a match through the national donor registry.

Fans are asked to come to Event Suite #1 The Home Depot Center between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. to complete a donor questionnaire and get tested by giving a swab of cheek cells. Please note, while we are seeking to find a match for Marcia, all donors will be entered into the NATIONAL BONE MARROW REGISTRY and may be contacted if they are a match for someone in need.

If you have more questions about this, please contact the Galaxy at 310-630-2200.

Good pick up. Hope he stays healthy this season.

I'm glad to see all the new players but this Beckham saga is putting a damper on my excitement for the upcoming season. I wish he were in camp with the rest of the lads. I think its shameful and a blow to the MLS if he were to leave now without winning a championship. I pray the Galaxy keep him. The fans deserve some proper closure as oppose to him running out on us at break and heading to Italy. It lacks class.
