Northwest Missouri State University's Student Athlete Advisory Committee is hosting an event to help save lives in the Maryville community. The SAAC will host a bone marrow drive on Monday, designed to help people like Preslee Wendle, a 15-month-old diagnosed with AML leukemia.
Northwest junior and SAAC member, Maddie Propst, says it's rewarding to help a child in need.
The SAAC's goal with the bone marrow drive is to educate people about donating bone marrow and to grow the registry so there is a greater chance matches will be made. Propst adds the process should take about ten minutes.
The bone marrow drive will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday at the Robert and Virginia Foster Fitness Center. Individuals must be between the ages of 18 and 44 to register.
