Illinois State Patrol to sponsor bone marrow drives across the state

Posted:

It’s your chance to help give the gift of life.

The Illinois State Patrol, in cooperation with the National Marrow Donor organization – Be the Match, will be conducting several donor drives across the state.

Marrow donation starts with a cheek swab to determine if there is a patient match who could benefit from your donation.
“This is a statewide initiative by all members of the ISP to make a difference in not only an individual’s life, but in the lives of all of their loved ones,” said ISP First Deputy Director Chad Peterson.

Below is a list of the ISP sponsored drive locations.  No appointment is necessary.
