Yonsei Basketball Association to Team Up with A3M in Fight to Save Lives

0

Austin Lee and Camryn Morimoto were winners of the recent annual Shootathon contest. They will be showcasing their shooting talents at the Yonsei Basketball exhibition game on Sunday, July 29, where A3M will have a booth to encourage people to become registered marrow donors.

Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches (A3M), an organization that is trying to get the word out to have Asian Americans become part of the national bone marrow registry, will have an information booth at the Yonsei Basketball Association’s annual exhibition game on Sunday, July 29.

Every day, thousands of patients with leukemia and other life-threatening diseases hope for a bone marrow donor who can be a match. Seventy percent of the patients don’t have a matching donor in their family. Many turn to the Be the Match Registry for someone who can give them a second chance at life.

Of the millions who are on the registry, only 7 percent are of Asian ancestry. There is a big need for more people of Asian and mixed background to become registered donors.

The Yonsei Basketball Association is proud to partner with A3M in the fight to save lives. For more information, go to www.a3mHOPE.org or www.Yonseibasketball.com.
