BILLINGS — A bone marrow registration drive in honor of Marissa Van Atta is Nov. 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Fraley Lounge on the campus of Rocky Mountain College.

Van Atta is a senior basketball player for the Battlin' Bears at Rocky. The 23-year-old Billings Senior graduate, who also played basketball at Montana State Billings, is battling acute myeloid leukemia. Van Atta is in need of a donor and a search has begun through the National Bone Marrow Registry.

Members of the public are welcome to support Van Atta, and patients like her, by registering as a potential bone marrow donor.

If one cannot make the drive, they can make a gift or register online at
