Bone Marrow drive -- for Chirag Patel
Chirag Patel needs your help. Will you swab your cheek to help save his life?
Chirag is a 39 year old Atlanta resident, diagnosed in August 2012 with CML (Chronic Myeloid Leukemia), a cancer of the white blood cells. He is in a critical phase and needs a bone marrow transplant to save his life.
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.
