The Oneida County Sheriff’s Office will be hosting a bone marrow drive in the hopes of finding a match for Sgt. Ken Hatter of the Manlius Police Department in Onondaga County.
Sgt. Hatter was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma 11 years ago, and it’s become more aggressive in the last two years, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Previous methods of treatment haven’t been effective and Hatter’s doctors believe that a bone marrow transplant is his best option.
The Sheriff’s Office will be hosting a bone barrow drive from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27 at Sangertown Square Mall’s center court. Those interested in becoming bone marrow donors will have their cheek swabbed, and the swabs are then sent to the National Bone Marrow Registry, where people are matched up.
Funds are also being collected for Sgt. Hatter through a GoFundMe page. If there are funds leftover after expenses are paid, it will be donated to the Wilmot Cancer Center, according to the page.
