Meena is a positive spirit who enjoys spending time with her five-year-old twins, Mia and Krish. She was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and was responding well to chemotherapy. Just one week later, she received the devastating news that her cancer returned as a more aggressive form called acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
”I was devastated…and immediately worried for my twins. I just want to get better so that I can watch them grow up.”
Her doctors told her that she would need a stem cell transplant, but no one in her family is a matching donor. Now, she needs to find a matching donor on the national stem cell registry. Meena is Hindu/Punjabi, but there is not a lot of donors who are South Asian which makes her search extremely challenging.
