Preston Varozza’s journey of donating marrow began before he was born.

In 1989, his mother, Gwyn, signed up for the marrow donor registry in support of a leukemia patient in San Jose, California. Gwyn had hoped to be a match for someone ever since, and she encouraged her children to support the registry in other ways.

Kyle Varozza, Preston’s younger brother, answered the call when he dedicated his Eagle Scout project to educating and registering people on the Be The Match Registry. Preston joined the registry in support of his brother’s project, not expecting that he would be a match.
