Manish Bhardwaj, 34 Austin, TX


An Appeal

Hello,

I need your help! I need people of South Asian descent to register and test for Bone Marrow transplant.

I am Manish Bhardwaj, a 34 year old Design Engineer at Free Scale Semi conductor and father of 5 year old daughter and a year old son. I was recently, in July of 2008, diagnosed with AML form of Leukemia.
The diagnosis came as a shock to me and my family. The news has devastated my aging parents and my young family.

I am in need of your help in saving my life and others like me.

With all of you registering to be a donor, you will help me have hopes of seeing my young children go through elementary, middle, high school graduations. I want to be a major part of their lives. I do not want to think of any times in their lives without their father!

A CHEEK SWAB FOR MATCHING/STEM CELL HARVESTING AND DONATION JUST NEEDS A FEW MINUTES OF YOUR TIME!!
The test for matching is just a swab test in your mouth. The stem cell donation is a NON-SURGICAL procedure, it could save my life or some one else's. Today, the number of South Asian's registered is fewer due to misconceptions with the procedures that are followed.

YOU CAN HELP ME LIVE MY LIFE! PLEASE GIVE US A FEW MINUTES OF YOUR TIME! MY FAMILY AND CHILDREN AND OTHERS LIKE ME WILL BE ETERNALLY GRATEFUL FOR YOUR SELFLESS EFFORTS!

It's possible that you might never be called. In case you are a match, you will be contacted by the center in which you tested and/or the NMDP will contact you immediately and give you the option of proceeding to the next level/s of testing to insure final HLA compatibility with the patient. The costs will be covered by my insurance.

My family and I thank you for your consideration to go through matching test. Individuals between the age of 18 and 60 can get tested for donation. Your local blood and tissue center can register you as well.

Please forward this email to generous people like yourself who are willing to give a few minutes of their time to help man kind.

Sincerely,
Manish Bhardwaj,
Austin, Texas


I received this appeal from Manish. Please forward this message to every Asian you know. check out his site

It is with deep regret we inform that Manish Bhardwaj lost his battle with cancer and passed away on Thursday, November 6th 2008 at 9:45 AM in Houston. Manish is survived by his wife Renuka, 5 year old daughter Ankita and 1 year old son Arjun. He started his journey to almighty and all are praying for him to rest in peace.

Manish's passing away was untimely but he indeed lived his life wonderfully. Manish did a lot on earth. I'm sure he will do much more in heaven. All the memories we have shared with him will forever be cherished and remembered. Manish will forever live in our hearts.

Manish adored his family. His wife, Renuka, daughter, Ankita and son Arjun were the center of his universe. His daughter Ankita had a special place in his heart. He could not take enough pictures of her.

The vast outpouring of love and support shown during his illness by all the people he has touched provides a solid stepping stone for all of us as we try to deal with this loss and move forward. At this difficult time, please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you all for the good wishes, prayer and support you all have provided in various bone marrow drives. Infact two perfect marrow matches were identified.

This is not the time for us to grieve his passing away but it's our time to celebrate his life. He wanted to make everyone happy. Think back and remember how Manish touched our lives. We should all be thankful that we were given the chance to have known him. Manish, a good friend, great husband, son and father will forever be missed.

I have been advised that Manish did find two matches. One was perfect match. However, he developed complication before bone marrow transplantation can take place. - Vijay Mehta
