Manlius Police Sergeant Ken Hatter is battling cancer. He's lived for years with non-Hodgkins lymphoma, but it's turned agressive and now requires more aggressive treatment.
It's a battle Hatter now can't win on his own. Local civilian with the Oneida County Sheriff's office is no stranger to cancer. She lost her father to the disease. When Cassandra Fusco learned of Sgt. Hatter's situation, she knew she needed to help.
With Fusco's help, a bone marrow drive has been put in place at Sangertown Square in center court. Anyone can go to center court on October 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to be swabbed to find out if they are a match for Hatter.
For a person who has spent years serving the public, local law enforcement and brothers in blue are teaming up to ensure the public he has served steps up to help him fight the battle for his life.
His best option now, is a bone marrow transplant, and needs to find a match. If no match is found, his diagnosis becomes grim.
Doctors are now combing through the national registry.
