Bone Marrow Registry Drive
Thank you to everyone for coming out to our Be The Match Bone Marrow Registry Drive on Ho Plaza. We worked hard to recruit the student body into the National Bone Marrow Registry. Because of our efforts, Asian patients with leukemia will have a greater chance of finding a match, potentially saving many lives.
In 1997, a brother from Stanford was diagnosed with leukemia. All of our chapters came together to help him search for a match by coordinating bone marrow drives on each of our campuses. Today, Lambda Phi Epsilon's national philanthropy is the Asian American Donor Program. Asian American Donor Program is a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the number of potential bone marrow and stem cell donors to save the lives of patients with leukemia and other blood-related diseases.
