On any given day, more than 6,000 men, women and children are searching the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) Registry for a life-saving donor like you. These patients have leukemia, lymphoma and other life-threatening diseases that can be treated by a bone marrow or cord blood transplant. For many of these patients, a transplant may be the best and only hope of a cure. We work to provide hope and deliver a cure to all patients in need. With your support, more patients can access the treatment they so desperately need.
As leaders in our respective communities and as devoted philanthropists among college students, Delta Epsilon Psi takes the initiative to help Be the Match Foundation by supporting them in their mission to create awareness and safe lives through registered donors. Our fraternity is not only committed to continuing awareness for the National Bone Marrow Donor Program, we are also committed to providing potential matches for the national match registry. In the past year, Delta Epsilon Psi registered over 500 individuals to the program with the future aim of increasing the amount annually.
It is our mission to be an outlet for the registry alongside other various chapters by hosting numerous events during our philanthropy weeks as well as throughout numerous dates in the semester that not only raise awareness but also register potential donors. The Nu Chapter of Delta Epsilon Psi has made a tremendous effort to increase the number of registered individuals by partnering with the University of Miami Hurricanes Football team in order to increase the chances of a patient to receive aid and to promote the need for diversity in the registry.
