The Buttner family has events and a special fund to help pay its medical bills:
On Jan. 23, all proceeds from the Subway restaurant at 400 Horseblock Rd. in Farmingville will be donated to the Hope for Julianna Fund.
A fundraiser is scheduled from 4 to 8 p.m. April 11, at Mulcahy's Pub and Music Hall, 1702 Middle Country Rd., Centereach.
Donations to the Hope for Julianna Fund can be sent to: P.O. Box 143, Farmingville, NY 11738.
To become a bone marrow donor, you can join the Be the Match Registry at a donor registry drive or online at bethematch.org. People must be between the ages of 18 and 60 and fill out a health history form.
If joining in person, your cheeks will be swabbed for cells. If joining online, you will be sent a swabbing kit in the mail. The swabs will then be analyzed for their type and your name placed on the registry.
