(WILX) -- Jim Pignataro is 47 and a respected member of the Michigan State athletic department.
He needs a bone marrow transplant soon after battling cancer for several tough years.
The MSU football players are hosting their 5th annual swab registration today 9-3pm at the Rock in the heart of the MSU campus.
Go sign up, no pain and all you do is swab your cheek and send it in.
MSU wants to help anyone needing a bone marrow infusion not just Pignataro but he is the impetus for today's event to be ultra successful as it has been the previous four years.
