Operation Save Jack work

In January 2012, my friend Jack was told that he would need a bone marrow transplant in order to survive his leukemia. Typically, the chances of finding a match are 1 in 20,000, but as a Chinese-American, Jack's odds were even lower since very few Asian-Americans are in the U.S. registry. Even his fraternal twin brother was not a match. I coordinated the PR effort for Jack to drive attendance to bone marrow donation registration drives, creating a press kit and driving awareness via social media, media outreach and community outreach.

Results included record attendance at drives in Cupertino, including one drive with over 200 attendees registering to donate bone marrow (typically drives receive just around 20); over 350 people registering to donate bone marrow via drives and mail-in cheek swabs; retweets by influencers, including California Senator Leland Yee; and over 20 media placements in the span of two months, including San Jose Mercury News, SF Weekly, Cupertino Courier and key Asian-American publications AsianWeek, Hyphen Magazine and Pacific Citizen. In April, Jack beat the odds and found a 9/10 match.
