I Am Not Myself


Are You of South Asian Descent?

As a professional software developer, I have worked with many folks over the years whose families came from or are still in countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Maldives, and Sri Lanka. If you happen to be one and you read my blog please consider becoming a bone marrow donor. For this particular segment of society the odds of finding a marrow donor are 1 in 20,000. You can help change that, here are a few ways to help:

1. If you’re South Asian, get a free test by mail. You rub your cheeks with a cotton swab and mail it back. It’s easy.

2. If you’re in NYC, you can go to this event organized by friends of Amit.

3. If you know any South Asians, please point ’em to the links above. Thank you.

Why do I care? Because Amit is one of us and he deserves a chance at a long productive life.
