Ferris Bone Marrow Registry April 10

Ferris State University faculty, staff and students are encouraged to register to be a Bone Marrow donor during the on-campus registration Tuesday, April 10.

The registration is taking place in the Student Recreation Center Lobby from 1 to 6 p.m. in hopes to make a difference for patients with Leukemia and other immune or blood disorders. There is no cost to register as a donor on college campuses because of Be The Match, a national bone marrow donor program.

A quick and simple swab of the inside of the donor's mouth will be taken during registration. Donors could make a positive difference in a patient's life.

For more information on registering to become a donor email Jennella Rykse at ryksej@ferris.edu or call (616) 293-8674.
