” I am Shobana Mallavaram and I am 28 years old. I am married and have a beautiful little girl of 2.5 years old. I love cooking, watching movies, travelling and spending time with family. We live in TX. I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, M5 sub-type in January 2016. I am undergoing chemotherapy and need a stem cell donor for a bone marrow transplant to help save my life.
Because I am South Asian (Asian Indian), there is no match for me in the existing registries, due to the lack of participation.” “I want to watch my child go up to be a strong woman. Please help me find a donor.” Please register online and be a committed marrow donor http://my.bethematch.org/HelpShobana
