Henley Winner and World U23 Medalist Paul Giblin of Ireland Needs Your Help



Earlier today we received an email alerting us to this video and this cause—Paul Giblin of Galway, a two-time Henley Royal Regatta winner, member of the 2005 Irish U23 national team (and bronze medalist at the 2003 World U23 Regatta), and and officer in the Army, is battling cancer, and is in need of a bone marrow transplant. Because of this, Paul and his friends are looking to raise awareness for bone marrow donors, and are urging people to join the bone marrow registry at www.marrowmatch.eu. We haven't yet been able to confirm this, but according to a YouTube comment posted below Paul's video, there will be testing in Ireland, set to take place in "Cork, Dublin, Athlone, and other places most days this week until late in the evening. More details of upcoming clinics available here."

You can also help spread the word by using the hashtag #marrowmatch on social media platforms, and by sharing the above video: http://youtu.be/lrwxnU2ScPM.

More information can be found in this article, posted yesterday to The Sport Review.
