Bone marrow drive Oct. 27
NEW HARTFORD — The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting a bone marrow drive at the Sangertown Square Mall on Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to try and find a potential donor for a police officer in need.
Sheriff Robert M. Maciol said Sgt. Ken Hatter with the Manlius Police Department in Onondaga County is in need of a bone marrow transplant after being diagnosed 11 years ago with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The latest treatments have been ineffective, and doctors said a transplant is Hatter’s best hope.
The bone marrow drive will involve having your cheek swabbed for a DNA test at the National Bone Marrow Registry, to see if you are a match for Sgt. Hatter, authorities said. The probability of being a bone marrow match is 1 in 430, so Maciol said they are hoping to get a large turnout.
