Free for minorities, reduced cost ($25) otherwise. From Fremont Public Library...Let's Talk!:
A blood and bone marrow drive will be held at the College of Lake County on Wednesday, April 23. The drive is sponsored by the CLC Health Center and LifeSource and will be held from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. in Anderson Court, located in Building A on the Grayslake Campus, 19351 W. Washington St.

An oral swab is taken to determine if potential donors are a bone marrow match. There is a $25 charge for the blood marrow donation. Exempt from the fee are minority groups (Asian, Black, Latino, Middle Eastern, Native American), fire fighters, police officers and college students in health care fields.

Free registration, thanks to the efforts of Chris Morin. Although he's more than raised $11,000, he'll still need help defraying some of the costs. From the Post Tribune:
The bone marrow drive is simple. Anyone between 18 and 60 can go to Crown Point High School on April 20 and have their mouth swabbed.

On Saturday, at Crown Point High School, a fund-raiser will be held to help defray the cost of the bone marrow tests. Eight high school bands will play between 4 and 10 p.m. and there will be concessions and games for kids. The cost is $5.
