BE THE MATCH 2019
There is a shortage of Asian bone marrow donors, making it very difficult for Asian patients who need a bone marrow transplant. On February 9th and 10th, we worked with BetheMatch to advocate for bone marrow donations. We manned a booth at Hsi Lai Temple during their Chinese New Years event.
SEPTEMBER BOOK SALES
Sunshine members sold used books every weekend in September (2019) to raise awareness and contribute towards finding a cure. Thank you to everyone who came to support!

SPIRIT WEEK 2020
To raise awareness for pediatric cancer during the month of September, childhood cancer awareness month, DBHS Sunshine hosted a spirit week. Each day of the week had a different theme where students educated themselves, as well as their peers, about pediatric cancer related facts!
BETHEMATCH SPIRIT WEEK
BetheMatch is an organization that helps find patients find bone marrow donors when they are in need of a bone marrow transplant. Due to the lack of willing donors registered on in their database, Sunshine hosted a spirit week to raise awareness. Sunshine partnered with HOSA, another club on campus that promotes medical and health education.
To bring Halloween spirit to patients
staying in the hospital, Sunshine
members packed goodie bags at the
local park. These treats were later
delivered to CHOC for patients on
their oncology floor.
WRITE AN E-CARD TO A PATIENT
For Valentine's Day, CHLA and St. Jude Children's Hospital are offering the opportunity to write an E-Card to one of their patient. It only takes a couple of minutes and is a great way to leave a message of encouragement. We hope you will check out their website and participate in this activity. The last day to complete this is 2/14.
EASTER GOODIE BAGS 2021
For this Easter, members got together at Ronald Reagan Park to create bunny themed goodie bags. We filled the bags with stuffed animals, Easter treats, and fun toys for the children at CHOC to enjoy! These goodie bags will be given to pediatric oncology patients that are inpatient, as well as any outpatient children in the infusion center. Happy Easter everyone!
