An Upton resident is organizing a bone marrow screening event in support of an 11-year-old local boy who was recently diagnosed with leukemia. Health workers will swab the cheeks of participants, and the results of the samples will be entered into a national bone marrow registry.
Kathy Murray, the organizer, said residents should first find out whether their insurance covers the $52 screening. The event will take place from noon to 4 p.m. on June 24 at Miscoe Hill School in Mendon.
