He desperately needs a bone marrow donation but unfortunately he is South Asian. It seems that South Asians are quite under-represented in the marrow donation system at the moment unfortunately. You can help change this though. FYI, for people who aren't South Asian but would still like to help, if you have friends that are Indian, Pakastani, Bangladeshi, Nepalese, Bhutanese, Maldivian and Sri Lankan they would all be eligible to help. Please pass it on.
It is very easy to help. All a potential marrow donor needs to do is get a free kit that simply involves a cheek swab. You can register at http://www.marrow.org/
You can also donate money which goes to providing this test matching kits for free to make it simple and easy for people to do it without a thought.
P.S. If you would be willing to pass this along via the internet (FB, Twitter, YouTube, other) that would help considerably.
P.P.S. Go to the http://www.marrow.org/ site like I did to test the link & you will be stunned by with the statistic at the top of the home page that only half of victims receive the needed marrow.
