I remember hearing the news Lisa was diagnose with multiple myeloma, the cancer is incurable, however Lisa is determine to define all odds. In this remarkable interview, with NDTV, Lisa lets us into her world and what these last eight months have been like for her. Lisa has been keeping a blog as well… many turn to it as their own source of inspiration.

While living in the UK, I got an invite to join Dean Sheikh’s Bone Marrow Donor Appeal group. I was touched by his story and even though he was sick, the video showed this sweet boy, just being a kid and having fun with his mom. On October 22nd, Dean passed away. There is a dire need, not just in the UK, but around the world for Bone Marrow donors of South Asian descent. UDR has teamed up with AADP.org (Asian Bone Marrow Program) please visit their website to learn how you can become a donor.You can also visit SAMAR to find a local donor branch in your community.
