Appeal

Please visit Nirali's parent's website and do whatever you can for their daughter. Here is an excerpt:

Our 18-month old daughter Nirali Naik has been diagnosed with a rare type of Acute Lymphoblast Leukemia and needs a marrow transplant to be treated.

She needs a bone marrow donation from a Indian/South Asian donor. Since Indians are a minority race in USA, in the national marrow registry, there aren't as many Indians registered and as a result, the possibility of a match is much less for patients of Indian origin. There's no organized marrow registry in India either that we can look for a match in.

Nirali is going through chemotherapy treatment right now but this type of ALL has a great chance of relapse if not treated with a bone marrow transplant.

We urge you please pray for Nirali and register for bone marrow donation to see if you can save her life.

Via Sepia Mutiny. Also, spread the word.
