Most of us have often wished and hoped that one day, somewhere, sometime we would be in a position to save a life and make a difference,
Now we can make a difference. We can SAVE A LIFE ….today. 5 minutes of your time could save a precious life.

Our son, brother, friend, Ani Das (son of Kamal and Karabi Das of Dallas Fort Worth) needs our help today.
Ani is a bright, caring, wonderful, young 18 year old Indian boy, who has been diagnosed with MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndrome) which is the first stage leading to leukemia. His only hope of cure is bone marrow transplantation, for which, he DESPERATELY NEEDS A Matching DONOR.

The best chance for him to find a matching donor is from our South Asian community (India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, etc).

Since Ani does not have a sibling, chances of finding a match are very slim, and it is vital to explore as many potential donors as possible.

Step 1: Registration: A simple, painless swab taken in the cheek.

Step 2. Blood Test: ONLY If there is a match from the Registration cheek swab, then the next step is a simple blood test.

Step 3. Marrow Donation. ONLY if there is a match after the blood test, then a small vial of marrow would be taken (under local anesthetic) and used to save Ani's life.
This last and final step (in the slim chance that there is a match) is now a well-established process.

THE MOST IMORTANT & VITAL step is to take just 5 minutes and get registered as soon as possible.

So, how can you help?

Get registered right away by calling one of the following:
You will be given information about where to go to get a 5 minute cheek swab done (very simple 1st step).

Bikash Pramanik (Carrollton, TX)

Anjan Sen (Plano, TX)

Mallika Bhattacharya (Plano, TX)

In DFW we will be organizing events and registration booths outside Indian grocery stores, at large Indian entertainment events, etc.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN SETTING UP A BOOTH OR IN HELPING WITH A REGISTRATION DRIVE, either in DFW or in other cities, PLEASE CALL Abhijit (214) 564-3731 or Debjani (214) 402-1965.

Please help us!

Register today... for a better tomorrow.
Let the world know, you DO care. Make a difference. Save a life.

Thank you so much in advance,
From friends and family of Ani, Kamal and Karabi….and ALL MDS patients
