The chances of finding a matched donor have improved recently, but many are still in the search process awaiting a donor.

Registering a large number of donors from the same race increases the chance of a patient finding a life saving marrow match.

Educating and informing donors is an important factor in retention.

Together, we can HELP

student & volunteer network

The Mission of the Student & Volunteer Network is to organize a group of leaders who will initiate change within their communities by increasing the number of committed marrow donors through education, community service and compassion.

Our network has helped us to make serious inroads into numerous educational institutions with a large segment of minority students. As future leaders of our community, the network has helped increase the number of committed donors by holding drives at many colleges and universities including: Boston University, Harvard, Middlesex , New Jersey College, Princeton , Rutgers , New York University, Wesleyan University , University of Connecticut, many of the SUNY’s and others fine educational establishments. This does include the many corporations and religious organizations we now partner with.

In order to continue in our mission, we are always looking for new, dedicated volunteers with bright ideas, tons of passion and new connections. Please fill out the form below to join the Student Network. If you have any questions and/or ideas, please contact us at
