Bone Marrow Drive to Save Briana
As you know, 12 year old Briana Lopez, a student at Lewis F.Cole Middle School has been battling cancer. It went into remission but returned. Now she's battling cancer again and needs another bone marrow transplant.
Her family is urging people to get tested and join the National Marrow Donor Program, in hopes of finding a match for Briana.
The drive, organized by The Icla Da Silva Foundation, can potentially benefit thousands more looking for a donor.
We would love for you and the Fort Lee parents to attend the next bone marrow drive and fundraiser for Briana Lopez on Sunday, Feb 12th, 12:00pm to 4:00pm at Fort Lee Recreation Center 1500 8th Street, Fort Lee, NJ (end of Stillwell Avenue).

NJ Office of Emergency Management
The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) is partnering with the New Jersey Office of Emergency Management (NJOEM) to improve the state’s ability to respond to residents with disabilities or those with functional needs when a disaster such as Hurricane Sandy occurs. The “Register Ready” Special Needs Registry for Disasters is an online registry in which citizens can provide emergency response agencies with important information (e.g., if a resident is wheelchair bound or requires medical apparatus) so that emergency responders can be better prepared to serve those individuals during a natural disaster or other emergency. Register Ready is a confidential database that can only be accessed by designated local, county and state emergency managers. The NJOEM Register Ready webpage contains links to brochures about the registry program in English and Spanish. Citizens should go to the Register Ready registration webpage to sign up for the program.
The NJOEM encourages New Jersey residents with disabilities or access and functional needs to sign up with Register Ready well before disaster strikes.
