“At the October 21 Bone Marrow Drive, those interested in joining the Registry complete paperwork which includes contact information and a brief health history, and a cheek swab is done,” says Ferruolo.  “No blood is taken and there is no out of pocket cost for someone who wants to join the ‘Be The Match’ Registry.”  An Information Session is also being held Wednesday, October 15, at 11:00 a.m. in LRCC’s Academic Commons.
