South Asians have one in 20,000 chance of
finding a bone marrow match, because of the
shortage of donors within the community.

100k Cheeks is a student run bone marrow
registry, at Stanford University, signing up South
Asian donors  successfully, using social media.
BMST is running a similar drive in India, where
the largest base of S. Asian donors exists.

The two organizations were connected on the
show, and will work together to address the
severe shortage of Bone Marrow donors within
the South Asian community.
