SABA-DC encourages you to help support “Swab, Sip, & Save a Life: A Bone Marrow Drive/Happy Hour in Honor of Stanford Professor Nalini Ambady.” The event is presented by savenalininow.org and the National Marrow Donor Program/Be The Match and hosted by NetSAP-DC at its April 18th Spring Third Thursday Happy Hour.
Would you bet your life on 1 in 20,000 odds? No one should have to – but that’s what Stanford Professor Nalini Ambady – and other South Asians - face.
Nalini Ambady has had a relapse of the Leukemia she battled in 2004. Nalini is a renowned scientist (you may know her work from Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink), an amazing mom, and a groundbreaking South Asian (the 1st South Asian psychology professor at Harvard and Stanford). To survive, Nalini has 8 weeks to find a South Asian bone marrow donor. You have the power to fix this. Join us at NetSAP-DC’s Third Thursday Happy Hour and join the National Bone Marrow Donor Registry. Registering requires a simple cheek swab. These days, donating bone marrow is similar to donating blood – quick and almost painless. If you register, it could be Nalini 9;s life that you save. Then grab a cocktail and toast life!
When: Thursday, April 18, 2012, 6:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
Where: Look Lounge @ 1909 K Street, NW

PLEASE HELP and SPREAD THE WORD. It is a tragedy to consider the possibility that there is a match out there, but (s)he is simply not on the registry. Imagine the heartbreak of knowing you, or someone you care about, could be saved but that the match you need simply didn’t bother to register. You can fix that with just a few minutes of your time.
Check out nalinineedsyou.org for more information about how you can get involved and save Nalini! See you on April 18th!
