Firstly I want to thank each and everyone who has been so supportive during this difficult time for me. The love and support that everyone has given me has truly made me speechless, and given me the strength to fight this!

I also want to thank everyone for the hard work that everyone is putting in to find me a match! I sincerely thank each and everyone of you.

Now id be lying if I said I wasn’t scared, however I am keeping a positive attitude because I know I can beat this!

I’ve been getting excellent care at MGH and my nurses are really nice. I’ve been trying to keep myself busy so that I don’t go crazy in this hospital room! Its hard though since you have to deal with chemo’s side effects and, well, no immune system. So sometimes you have good days and bad days. On my good days I watch movies and shows (thanks bhaiya for the ipad!), read, talk to the nurses and my parents and brother. I try to reach out to all the family and friends that have showered me with so much love and support.

Well dearest family and friends, I just wanted to give you all an update regarding how things are going.

Again I want to thank everyone for your love and support and hard work being put in the Cure Sonia Campaign!

Lots of Love,

Sonia

Step up and find a match for Sonia

Please visit CureSonia.com she needs a bone marrow transfusion to help fight her Leukemia, the bone marrow has to be someone from a South Asian origin. All it takes is a few cotton swabs inside your mouth to see if you could be the one to save Sonia’s life. We should all take the opportunity to do this simple test.  Imagine someone in your family could end up in Sonia’s position. No one is immune from leukemia or cancer, it can strike anyone at any time. If you are interested in hosting a drive please email curesoniadrives[@]gmail.com
