When Nick Vojnovic, president of Little Greek Fresh Grill, attended a donation drive held in honor of a boy with leukemia at one of the chain’s stores, he registered for a Be the Match Registry, which identifies potential donors for people in need of bone marrow and stem cell transplants. Like other participants, the then-president of Beef ‘O’ Brady’s gave a sample of his DNA by rubbing a cotton swab on the inside of his mouth. Five years later, a representative of the registry called Vojnovic because his sample was a match for someone in need of marrow.
