Dear Friends & Family,
My Dad, Mahesh Pati, was recently diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. This has been a heartbreaking time for the family as the news of his diagnosis was out of no where and came a day after my wedding.
We need your help. My Dad will die unless he gets a stem cell transplant in the next few months. A matching donor is likely to be South Asian, but very few are registered. You could be his life saving match

About My Dad
My Dad, Mahesh Pati, is the best father one could ask for. He's warm, gentle, and always there for us to give us hope, confidence and inspiration. He's an immigrant from India, who grew up in Baripada, a city within Odisha. He graduated from NIT Rourkela and moved to the US to pursue his PhD from Case Western. Mahesh worked his way up the ladder to an executive consultant at IBM. He came to this country with a vision to give his them every opportunity and set an example through hard work, dedication, and integrity.
Even after retiring, he is known to be very active in the community both as a part time professor, and in his service work as the President of a local chapter of the Satya Sai organization.Prior to his diagnosis (a day after hosting a party for his son's marriage), my Dad had made plans with my beautiful mom, Nibedita -- they have dreams of living in better weather, traveling the world, and spending more time with family & friends.
These are dreams worth fighting for. I need your help to make them come true. Help me save his life and join the stem cell registry today to see if you are his life saving match.
