Phiota Joins the Icla da Silva Foundation to Recruit Bone Marrow Donors


New York, New York - February, 2008

Phi Iota Alpha Fraternity joined the Icla da Silva Foundation in its efforts to create awareness about the need for more marrow donors and develope marrow recruitment drives at college campuses throughout the United States.

Airam da Silva, M.P.H., Icla da Silva Foundation's Executive Vice President, spoke at Phi Iota Alpha's National Convention late in 2007 about the need for partnership with other organization to increase awareness about the need for marrow donors.

Every year, more than 10,000 Americans get life-threatening diseases that can only be cured with a bone marrow transplant from an unrelated donor.", explained Mr. da Silva. "One of the main reasons 64 percent of the searching patient s don't get the transplant they need is because there are not enough diverse donors on the registry."

You could be the one to save a life. Sign up to be a marrow donor, organize a marrow drive and or volunteer at http://www.icla.org
