SWABBIN' 4 ROBIN – Southeastern Louisiana University sophomore Jacob Bellairs of Hammond swabs his cheek Monday (Nov. 11) in the Student Union mall as part of the process to be enrolled in the Be the Match database, an effort intended to increase awareness of bone marrow transplant needs and to collect potential donors. The campus-wide, student-led initiative will continue through the spring semester and is being conducted in honor of Southeastern alumna and "Good Morning America" host Robin Roberts, who is currently recovering from a bone marrow transplant. Swabbin' 4 Robin has signed up approximately 250 donors to date. Additional information can be found on the web site southeastern.edu/swabbin4robin.
