Marrow typing drive Friday in Rantoul

Rantoul resident Fred Thomas will sponsor a marrow typing drive from 3-6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 2, at the Rantoul Recreation Building, 100 W. Flessner Ave.

A blood drive will also be held from noon-5:30 p.m.

Many patients are suffering from life-threatening diseases that could be treated with a marrow or stem cell transplant if a suitable donor could be found.

To join the registry, an individual must be between the ages of 18 and 45 and willing to donate for any searching patient and meet health guidelines.
