We love St. Thomas University!

Some people think that the big schools are the best place to go to get a lot of donors registered. While in some cases that might be true (Roll Tide), one of our best events this entire year was at St. Thomas University in Miami, which only has about 1,300 students! The softball team in particular has been a HUGE help in our movement. Their amazing coaching staff and fired up players have signed up almost 500 potential donors this year, making it the school that has signed up the most donors for SAM so far in 2015!

They got involved when a young boy named Brady was diagnosed with aplastic anemia (the same disease Sam has) and was unable to find a match:

We hosted an awesome Donor Jam with them back in February when we were in Florida:

Last week, they hosted a “Space Jam” (what we call our satellite events where we can’t be there in person but send the supplies to our wonderful volunteers), and signed up 164 more donors!

Thank you STU for your support in the fight against cancer. We love you all and your determination to find matches for every patient in need.
