Folks, I have asked before and I ask again. This time it is hitting me much closer to home. My home.
My cousin Vinay Chakravarthy is fighting the good fight. Diagnosed with leukemia some months back, he has had a relapse despite several chemotherapy sessions. The next logical step is a bone marrow transplant. This is where you could play a pivotal part. But you have to step up.
Time is of the essence. Vinay needs a match within the next six weeks. Please furnish the following information to the registry and be specific that you want your “HLA” type to be cross-checked with that of Vinay Chakravarthy's (information the registry should have in their data base.)
If you have any further questions, please contact me.
