[Wadabo_updates] save a life - register to be a bone marrow donor

hi all -
this post to the list is not dance related, but i hope you'll forgive
me. my sister's friend Vinay is a 28 year old physician in boston who
has AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia). he needs a bone marrow donation
urgently. the other major problem is that he is south asian (family from
southern india) and the number of non-white donors who are registered is
very very low.

Vinay's friends and family are organizing a number of drives around the
country, and there are a couple in boston this week (tonight, tomorrow,
saturday). the drive is to sign up potential bone marrow donors. it is a
simple process (fill out a form, swab your cheek). it is free for people
of color, minorities, non-whites.

if you or your friends are south asian, then you/they stand the highest
likelihood of saving Vinay. however, if you have some other non-white
racial background, please also come register, as you may be able to save
someone else's life.
