Jeff Cole Bone Marrow Drive TODAY!!!!!
ORONO, Maine – The University of Maine football team, in conjunction with the women's soccer team and students from the Bodwell Center, will host the sixth annual Jeff Cole Bone Marrow Drive on Wednesday, May 1, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. in the Bangor Room at the Memorial Union on the campus of the University of Maine.
The process takes only a few minutes and requires just a swab from the inside of the cheek to be put on the registry. Donations of bone marrow are life saving treatments used to treat several types of cancers and other serious illnesses.
The Drive is in memory of former Black Bear coach Jeff Cole, who passed away on October 18, 2004, after a multi-year battle with cancer.
