    Yale Athletics hosted its 11th annual Mandi Schwartz Bone Marrow Donor Registration Drive Thursday.

    Schwartz, a member of the Yale women's ice hockey team, passed away in 2011 after a long battle with cancer. She never found her perfect match but the Yale community is hoping with their help, others can.

    Yale football advisor Larry Ciotti said they are on schedule to sign up between 400 and 500 donors this year, which will be the largest drive in the country.

    Coupled with the match registry, this drive alone has helped save 58 lives since it started more than a decade ago.
