Bone Marrow Drive brings donors to AMMC

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT)- A bone marrow drive was held Thursday at Arkansas Methodist Medical Center in Paragould for the "Be the Match Registry."

A little bit of paperwork and a check swab is all that's needed to determine if someone is a match.

Mary LeSueur with "Be the Match Registry" says there is a real need for bone marrow donors. LeSueur said, "The need is huge. Every year there are about 10,000 folks who are diagnosed with some type of disease that will require a bone marrow transplant."
