Zach was a freshman at Villanova University when he signed up to be a donor at a GITG drive on campus. “It was easy, I went and got swabbed.” A few months after he joined the registry, Zach’s father was in need of a life-saving transplant. “At the time I joined the registry, I didn’t really know what that meant. That summer I saw my dad get the transplant, I saw what happens to you and the magnitude of the situation.”
