The legacy of late Detective Nathan Shroer lives on as EPD Officers host a bone marrow registry drive in his memory. Schroer lost his battle with Leukemia last November after searching for a bone marrow donor match. Inspired by the man who touched countless lives during his short life time. Organizers say they hope drives like this will help save others lives down the road. Detective Brian Turpin says Schroer was supportive of such events.

"He loved whenever people were the body of Christ and people had defeat and did good things and weren't just complacent and weren't just thinking about themselves", said Turpin.

Statistics show only four out of 10 blood cancer patients searching for a life-saving bone marrow transplant will ever find the match they need.
