I was asked to photograph my cousin Vinay and his wife Rashmi for a post-card campaign Team Vinay is about to launch. If you haven’t been following along, Vinay is battling AML, a form of Leukemia. Even after several chemotherapy sessions, he needs a bone marrow match. Please visit HelpVinay.org to read about where you can register and potentially save lives; Vinay’s and others like him.
Vinay could very easily be your brother, your husband, your father. As a South Asian it is infinitely more challenging to find a match, but it doesn’t have to be that way if only more South Asians like you (yes you reading this blog post) will commit to registering yourselves in the national marrow donor database. I have called you all, and some of you have readily done so, to step up and register. It’s quick and painless. So, please DO IT NOW.
Here are the images I shot of Vinay and Rashmi over the weekend. Which one would you pick for the post-card campaign? Make your choice and then leave a comment that others will appreciate. Thank you.
