When Mary Catherine Lewis found out that a friend of hers had blood cancer and needed a donor, she took action. Using her skills and talents in organizing and outreach, she got involved with a local organization and has since been instrumental in putting together 5 Donor drives in her community, trying to attract the most likely genetic matches to the patients in need. And it worked! So far her drives have led to donor matches for at least two patients in need and probably more.
Mary Catherine is a talented, driven and hardworking person. But what I really love about this story is how it shows the difference that one individual can make. It doesn’t take money or fame, just an idea and the courage and dedication to put that idea into action. Truly inspirational.

Thank you Mary Catherine!
