Following the invocation by His Eminence, welcoming remarks were delivered by Ladies Auxiliary member and MC Mrs. Maral Tarpinian, who stated that such events are organized to offer intellectual nourishment in addition to physical nourishment and gave an overview of the day’s topic. During lunch guests enjoyed a cultural program presented by three students of Vahan and Anoush Chamlian Schools, Andre Giragossian, Nanor Shahinian, and Caitlyn Baghdassarian, who were accompanied on the piano by their music teacher Suzy Pashanian. The MC thanked the school administration and teacher for the students’ participation, after which she introduced and invited Dr. Madelian, a research scientist, lecturer, and member of the Armenian Bone Marrow Donor registry for the past fifteen years, to present her lecture.

Dr. Madelian gave an audio-visual presentation on stem cell transplantation as the last hope for those suffering from blood illnesses. She explained that the Armenian Bone Marrow Donor was established two decades ago because due to the unique genetic make-up of Armenians, it is nearly impossible to find potential bone marrow donors from the general population. The organization has around 29,000 registered donors and has helped nearly 3,500 patients, doing most of its work through volunteers. Dr. Madelian also spoke about the process of registering potential donors, and urged all to register to help our fellow Armenians.

Following the presentation, the Prelate delivered his message commending Dr. Madelian’s informative and interesting lecture as well as the students’ performances.

His Eminence spoke of the Armenian Bone Marrow Donor Registry’s mission as not only humanitarian work but also God-pleasing work following in our Lord’s commandment to love and serve one another as ourselves. As Jesus commanded His disciples to go and spread His Word prior to His assumption, members of the Armenian Bone Marrow Donor Registry and the guests in attendance are called to serve in that spirit and be apostles of this mission. The Prelate commended ABMDR’S President Dr. Frieda Jordan and all members and volunteers, and called on the guests to support the organization’s mission. His Eminence commended also the Ladies Auxiliary who contribute to the Prelacy’s mission through this and similar events, and in conclusion presented a copy of poet Jacques Hagopian’s newly published book to Dr. Madelian.
