We Love You Mandi Schwartz #17

The Yale community is deeply saddened by the death of Mandi Schwartz ’11, who passed away Sunday morning surrounded by family and friends.

Our thoughts are with the Schwartz family, Mandi’s fiance, her physicians and caregivers, and her friends, classmates, coaches and teammates, all of whom were integral to Mandi’s valiant fight against the cancer that eventually took her life.

The grace and courage with which Mandi approached her treatment, and the enthusiasm and optimism with which Mandi approached life itself have inspired countless people, both here in New Haven and beyond. Her efforts — and the efforts of those close to her — to raise awareness of, and participation in, marrow and cord blood donor programs have already yielded potentially lifesaving results.

Yale will continue those efforts through the annual Mandi Schwartz Marrow Donor Registry Drive at Yale. The next drive will be held on Thursday, April 21, on the Yale campus. Through this and future drives, we hope to honor Mandi and her indomitable spirit.-Yale Daily Bulletin

    I was so sorry to hear of Mandi’s passing. She was kind enough, last year, to help my grandson skate at the Yale rink. His first time on skates and he had the honor of being escorted by this wonderful young woman. My condolences to all who knew and loved her.

    Sincerely,
    Susan Clark
