Iota Nu Delta brother from the University at Texas, Austin, went through an extensive process in order to help a woman with bone marrow cancer.
Kevin describes his experience like this:
"A few months back, I got a call telling me that I'm a potential match for a bone marrow patient, and a few weeks back, I got a call stating that I'm the best match for this patient. It took 10 shots and over 6 hours of donation today to extract the bone marrow cells needed for the transplant. It truly makes me happy that I was given an opportunity to save someone's life, here's to prayers and hopes of a Christmas miracle for my cells to not get rejected by the 44 yr old lady with bone marrow cancer."
Kevin reminds us all to think of others before ourselves and do what we can to help those in need - especially during this holiday season.
We are hoping for the best possible results for this woman and we hope everyone is as inspired by Kevin's story as we are!

After graduating, KJ dropped everything and moved out to San Francisco to pursue his passion for technology. He continues to inspire all of us to pursue greatness in the fields we love.
Congratulations to KJ and we wish him continued success in his inspiring story.
Iota Nu Delta would like to congratulate brother Dhaval Amin who recently graduated from the New York College of Podiatric Medicine and matched his first choice residency at Womack Army Medical Center in Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
Unlike the common residency, WAMC requires the resident to be a commissioned officer of the U.S. Army! In turn, you not only have your responsibilities to your respective medical field, but also must uphold and meet the standards as a U.S. Army Officer.
Dhaval direct commissioned as a Captain in April of this year, and graduated in May; he then began his Basic Officer Leadership Training in San Antonio, TX. Since then, he has relocated to Fort Bragg, NC where is officially training as a Podiatric Surgeon.
"For me, there is no greater honor than serving our troops and their families, who’ve selflessly defended our freedoms at home and abroad. To the brothers of Iota Nu Delta, I urge you all to continue taking the road less travelled, at the end is where you will find your greatest treasures." - Brother Dhaval Amin
Congratulations to him once again - we wish you nothing but continued success!!
