What’s it like to get the call? The donor’s perspective.

Can you imagine how you would feel if you got the call to donate? SAMAR, the South Asian Marrow Association of Recruiters, in the US has incredibly moving testimonies from donors.

“It’s amazing ..this is the first time two unrelated people with the same last name have matched. Patel meets Patel for the first time a year after the transplant. “Always keep hope, there is someone who is going to help you. It has given me a new outlook in life” says Jay Patel. His donor Vikram Patel said he was happy being a marrow donor because it saved a young boy’s life. “People in the community should come forward to donate this precious gift of life”.”

ASAD is thrilled to be working with SAMAR to bring registration drives to even more South Asian communities in the US. Take action, connect with ASAD or SAMAR and bring an awareness event or registration drive to your area!
