The sisters of Delta Zeta quickly organized two bone marrow drives with the National Bone Marrow Registry and the local American Red Cross to find a match for Caroline in the spring of 2005. Thanks to the hard efforts of the chapter and support of the University and community, over 600 people were added to the bone marrow registry in 2005 alone.

Sadly, Caroline passed away on August 22, 2005. However, her memory lives on as we continue to host an annual Sweet Caroline Bone Marrow Drive each spring.
