Vinay and Rashmi,
I heard through the very fast BUSM grapevine about the match and almost fell over with happiness. I had no idea of the scope of your organizational pan-national efforts and am overwhelmed with how many people you have helped along the way. You are gorgeous people who have shown so much faith and love this year. I'm thrilled for you as you head off on this so-hopeful part of your long journey together. Rashmi, we miss you at school, and I can't wait to hang out and celebrate soon. I'm sending loving vibes to the donor, wherever (s)he is!!!!! Stay strong, love, Liz

Dear Vinay,

I am so very happy that you found a match!!!! I have been following your story on your website ever since my sister Rupie told me about it a few weeks ago. I am Punjabi and was diagnosed with AML 3 years ago. I had five siblings and, thankfully, one match. My little sister, Seema, saved my life. My cancer journey and bone marrow transplant was a very public affair as I am a Membe of the Legislature in British Columbia, Canada. I am a former nurse and lawyer and am serving my third term of office. I have used my expericence to assist in raising awareness of the need for ethnic donors and am working closed with the Bone Marrow Donor Registry and Canadian Blood Services. I am so proud of you and your team. I want to wish you the very best and will keep you in my prayers. Having been through a BMT, I know the best thing you have going for you is your very strong spirit, your positive attitude, your supportive wife and family, and all your incredible friends!!! TWe are praying for the best possible results for you!

(During my journey, I wrote a series of letters. I found that a lot of people/ families going through the same experience found the information helpful as it was from a patient perspective. You can look it up under the news archives on my website

I will look forward to your updates and progress. All the best, Sindi

Nelly Ganesan

Veece. Yippee! It's almost transplant time!! The only thing I'm sad about is that I don't get to see you for 4 whole weeks! At least this gives me time to practice hummdinger - I'll be sure to whoop you when you're out and ready :) Miss you kiddo. Love Nelly.

Hi, Vinay and Rashmi. I'm a classmate of Rashmi's, and she was so gracious to come and speak at our the final Student Oncology Society (SOS) seminar. Although I don't know her too too well (or Vinay at all), I've been fervently following along in your progress and mass forwarding related drive/event information/fliers to anyone possible, because I find the beautiful strength and attitude you've all maintained throughout a positively enthralling inspiration. I know the journey is not over and that bumps lie ahead still, but may your invincible hearts continue to carry you through. I'm pulling for you and will be thinking of you...

Dear Vinay and Rashmi,
For some reason ,my message that I sent yesterday didn'i cpme thro'. Anyway, I am so happy to note about your match & your BMT. I wanted to hug you and Rashmi and the donor who is very much committed to this cause. We all will pray even more than before, Vinay, for a successful BMT and a speedy recovery and for the donor too for his recovery . Rashmi, you are such a tower of strength and you give courage to all the women out there who are going thro' such ordeals. God bless you all.
