Sigma Gamma Rho alum, Windy Peterson, was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia, an aggressive blood cancer.
With no match in her family, Windy’s best chance of receiving a life-saving transplant is by finding a matched, unrelated donor who shares her African American heritage.

Why this matters: 

Black patients, like Windy, only have a 23% chance of finding a match compared to a 77% chance of finding a match for White patients.

Shanice is a Sigma Gamma Rho soror and a Be The Match donor.
