The Perfect Match

Meet Deegan and Chase, Project 44’s first life-saving match. A former Butler Basketball teammate of Andrew Smith, Chase Stigall was among the first to join the bone marrow registry through Project 44. Four months later, he got the call and helped save the life of four-year-old Deegan Scott.

Andrew's Legacy Lives On

Butler University honored Project 44, Samantha Smith, Chase Stigall, Deegan Scott and his parents at halftime of Butler’s Big East game against Providence on February 17, 2018. Gregg Doyel covered the event for the Indianapolis Star and wrote about it in February 2018.
