Help Dr. Nalini Ambady … now!!
Nalini Ambady is a beloved friend, renowned researcher and professor at Stanford University, and the active mom of two teenage daughters, Maya and Leena. She is also fighting for her life. Just a few days after celebrating Thanksgiving with her family and friends, Nalini was diagnosed with a recurrence of leukemia, which she first battled in 2004. Now, she urgently needs a bone marrow transplant from a genetically matched donor. Someone out there is a perfect match, but they may not be on the registry yet. That someone can literally save her life – and it could be you. Nalini needs your help.
Time is short, and the holidays are here. This is your chance to give a gift that really matters. Please
become a registered bone marrow donor by attending a bone marrow drive in your area or registering online for free. It only takes a few minutes and you could literally save a life.
Help,It’s time to use the social connections we have developed through emails, facebook, blogs etc… and try to save a life!!
We need your help in two simple ways:
– Register yourself to the Bone Marrow Registry
– Help us spread the word and encourage your friends and family to register, and ask them to help us spread the word similarly!!!
Here is a message from Aneeta Rattan, postdoctoral scholar at Standford University:
“I want to personally ask you to help. My amazing and wonderful postdoc advisor, mentor, and friend, Professor Nalini Ambady of the psychology department, has had a relapse of Leukemia, which she first had in 2004. She needs a bone marrow donor. PLEASE HELP. It is a tragedy to consider the possibility that there is a match out there, but (s)he is simply not on the registry. You can fix that with just a few minutes of your time.”
– Aneeta Rattan, postdoctoral scholar with Nalini

They are part of the class at Standford University…. They are few years old, but the message is the same, and I believe the power of social media is nothing – if we, the people, don’t know how to use it…!!!
