Sameer Bhatia's death: What we must do

It is tragic that Sameer Bhatia died on March 27, 2008. He was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML), and died after a courageous battle in Seattle. Sameer was an accomplished Silicon Valley entrepreneur. The courage that Sameer, his wife Reena, their parents, and all their friends showed in finding every possible solution to help him, is indeed inspiring to us all. The only way we can help Sameer's cause is to work on the Asian bone marrow registry and to continue to fund research for cancer by giving generously and encouraging the innovators and researchers who are spending a lifetime to rid us of this disease.

May he rest in peace.
