COR DEVELOPMENT AND LOCAL PARTNERS TO HOST BONE MARROW SCREENING AND BLOOD DRIVE IN HONOR OF SGT. KEN HATTER AT TOWNE CENTER AT FAYETTEVILLE
Drive to be held Friday, January 31st, 2020
WHAT: COR Development, Manlius Police Department, American Red Cross, the Hatter Family and The Recovery Lounge are joining together to host a public bone marrow screening and blood drive in honor of Manlius police Sgt. Ken Hatter. This very special event is a celebration of Ken’s health and in support of patients in need. Be the lifeline patients need by donating blood and/or joining the National Bone Marrow Program Registry.
In 2007, Sgt. Ken Hatter was diagnosed with slow growing Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. In 2018, the cancer became aggressive and ultimately required an allogenic stem cell transplant. Through multiple bone marrow drive events and the National Bone Marrow Registry, a bone marrow donor was finally identified, and Ken received a life-saving transplant in November 2018. Ken’s treatment also required 18 units of blood and several units of platelets, all of which came from volunteer blood donors.
The Drive will take place at Towne Center at Fayetteville in the Community Room, and The Recovery Lounge on Friday, January 31st, 2020 from 12:00pm to 6:00pm.
All presenting blood donors will receive a free reusable Red Cross tote bad, and all who donate blood or join the registry will be entered to win great prizes.
“COR Development is pleased to team up with the American Red Cross, Sgt. Hatter and the Manlius Police Department to bring awareness to the importance and need to give blood,” said Merissa Lynch, Marketing Manager for COR Development. “The simple act of donating blood goes a long way in impacting the life of someone critically ill or injured, and we’re glad to see our community rally together to help make a difference.”
