Amit Gupta, an Indian entrepreneur in Newyork, a friend and a kind soul needs a bone marrow match for aPeripheral Blood Stem cells donation and you can help.
If you live in Bangalore India, chances are you can help not only Amit, but the many, many other people around the world. South Asians have a dramatically lower chance of finding a match in the worldwide bone marrow registries than other populations. While this is a big and often tragic problem, it’s one that can be fixed!
So what can you do? Get to the nearest drive in Bangalore this week and show @SuperAmit you CARE.
A quick and simple process, where a cotton swab is rubbed inside your cheek. It is processed to determine your genetic typing.

DATRI (www.datriword.org), the Indian bone marrow donor registry will have their kits at each of these venues to help you find out if you are THE MATCH! As a bonus, each drive can add dozens or even hundreds of new potential donors to the database — meaning your efforts will help not just Amit but a countless more find a match.
Plus, it’s REALLY EASY! DATRI is dedicated to helping anyone host a drive, and the test only takes a few minutes and a Q-tip-like swab inside the cheek. This is virtually painless, maybe less painful than donating blood.
What happens if you are THE one? Well then, your cells will help someone live- perhaps the best gift you can give ANYONE.
