Help Vinay

Vinay is a 28 year old husband, son, and physician who has been diagnosed with AML, a rare form of leukemia that is unresponsive to chemotherapy. Without a bone marrow transplant in the next 4 weeks, he will not survive. A simple cheek-swab test will determine whether or not you are a match and could save his life. Drives are planned for virtually every day and being held all over the country. Please attend one near you and help Vinay. Thanks.

I registered over the weekend, along with my cousin who was visiting from Canada. The small but steady trickle of complete strangers converging into an unknown place to do their part to save the life of a man they've probably never met was inspiring and moving. If haven't already done so, I urge you to attend a drive or join the registry online. This is entirely doable: Vinay can live, but only if you help.
