East Quogue seeks bone marrow for residents

East Quogue is rallying in an effort to save two men battling cancer.

The men, who are friends, are in need of bone marrow transplants.

One is Tom Corrigan, who’s a former New York City detective and member of the FBI-New York Police Department's Joint Terrorism Task Force.

The other is Matt Curran, who’s a salesman.

A bone marrow drive is being held Saturday at the East Quogue Firehouse. The drive is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The test for a bone marrow match involves a simple quick swab of the inside of your mouth.

Corrigan, who is married with four children, has an aggressive form of leukemia. Curran, the father of two children, has non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
