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.
