Bone Marrow Drive -- for Chirag Patel
Chirag Patel is a kind husband, doting father, and the hero of 5-year-old Ariana and 8-year-old Armana. Diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) in July, he promised Armana on her 8th birthday in August that he would always be there for her for many birthdays to come. His condition worsened and the doctors have said that his only chance of survival is a bone marrow transplant.
Give Chirag the chance of life and help him keep his promise to his daughters by registering as a bone marrow donor at our next drive.
Date: Sunday, February 24, 2013
Time: 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

We have a short time to find a match, and it is difficult since there are few of South Asian heritage in the national registry. Please note the match could be found outside of the community as well, so his friends and family are reaching out to all to register. Please come to one of the scheduled drives below or see the website http://marrow.org/About/About_Be_The_Match.aspx
You can read more about his challenge at www.chigistrongbonemarrowmatch.org.
Please pass this message to your network and request all to register.
