Anish, a 40-year-old husband and father of two young girls, desperately needs a bone marrow or stem cell transplant to save his life. In December 2019, he was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and needs a transplant as soon as possible for his best chance at a cure.
It is urgent that we find his match.
A donor match is based on tissue type, and the best chance for a match is with someone from similar ancestry or ethnicity.
Anish is of Northern Indian ancestry – his parents hail from the Punjab/Haryana area.
Anish lives in Southern California with his wife Lavi and his two adoring daughters, ages 3 and 8. He is a graduate of Cornell University and a technology developer, engineer and entrepreneur. He and Lavi focus their work on helping people simplify and organize their lives to gain more time to do what makes them happy. He has a deep positivity and appreciation for life that are intrinsic to his nature. They recently lost his wife’s father to cancer, and just when they were putting this wound behind them, this shocking diagnosis came and upended their lives.
Anish loves music, is a world traveler, deep thinker, a boisterous friend, and a playful devoted father. He is beloved by all his family and friends, especially his girls. He embraces strangers like his own, and cares deeply for others, putting his focus on living life with passion and purpose and finding beauty everywhere in the world.
Please, if you can reach out to your teams and friends and ask them to join the registry if they share a similar background. Remember, our most requested donors are adults 18-35.
