Amaey Shah, an engaging, fun-loving 8 year old boy who loves science, legos, cooking and his friends and family, was diagnosed with Leukemia (ALL) in 2005 and has been in treatment since. Amaey recently was diagnosed with an additional aggressive form of Leukemia, called AML. Amaey is in need of a bone marrow transplant and needs your help!

Registration entails a cheek swab & a form - 10 min of your time.

We are reaching out to the South Asian-Indian community with hopes of finding a match. Donors of all nationalities are welcome.

To be announced, Drive at Canton Hindu Temple

This is how you could help:
1. Register to be a Lifesaver - If you are between the ages of 18 and 60 and in overall good health, you can become a Registry member by ordering a kit, taking a swab of your cheek, & mailing the kit back in. If you are identified as a potential match for someone, you would then be further profiled for possible peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) or marrow donation.*

If you are interested in becoming a donor and prefer to do it online,click on http://www.marrow.org/JOIN/index.html?. You will then be asked to provide general information to receive a tissue typing kit.

2. Give Dollars -

Even if you do not want to receive a tissue typing kit, you can still contribute to the cause. It costs in the neighborhood $100 to add one new member into the Be The Match Registry. Help us raise funds to cover tissue typing by clicking the "Make A Gift" button on the left.

Questions pertaining to tissue typing kits or financial donations can be directed to Tarita Gibson of the Be the Match Registry of the National Marrow Donor Program, tgibson@nmdp.org.
