Dr. Mehta, I was wondering if you can update about the bone marrow patients status.

I was shocked to find out yesterday and today about the passing of Sameer and Vinay. I hope that you update the forum so that we are aware of the people's status of their medical condition. Thank you

RIP to Sameer and Vinay

Sameer Bhatia, whose brave struggle against leukemia was documented at and caught the imagination of South Asians across the U.S., died on Thursday, March 27, 2008, in Seattle. Below are messages from the family (please post your thoughts in the comments section).

Dear Sameer's friends,

For those of you who have not yet heard, it is with deep sadness that I share the news of Sameer's passing. Sameer passed away peacefully early Thursday morning in Seattle, surrounded by family.

Regardless of whether you knew Sameer for years or if you met him just once, all of you experienced his amazing zest for life, his entrepreneurial spirit, and his passion for changing our world for the better.

Please see below for details about tomorrow's Memoral Service, information about the live webcast of the service, and messages from Sameer's father. All of these details are also available at

If you wish to share your thoughts or prayers with Sameer's family, please do so by adding comments to blog posts on the Sameer's site. Also please pass this message on to anyone you feel should be informed of Sameer's passing.

With warmth,

Robert, on behalf of Sameer's family
