    Dear all,


    A little girl diagnosed with HLH and needs a donated bone marrow or stem cell that matches her own for a transplant. Ethnicity is crucial when matching donors and there is currently a shortage of Indians in the Registry.

    Please come on out to the Austin Hindu Temple on Sunday June 20th for a live drive between 11am and 4pm. The whole process only takes a few minutes but if a match is found, it will mean many more healthy happy years for that little girl and potentially others like her. If you can't make it on June 20th, you can also get a home test kit!

    You can read the little girl's story here and learn about other drives as well:

    Thank you and do spread the word to all your family/friends! Hope to see many on the 20th June for this social cause @ Austin Hindu Temple!
