Hi Pia,

I watched your story on the news, and it touched my heart. Although I'm not of minority descent, I wanted to send my prayers and best wishes to you. One of my best friends is Indian, and I sent her an e-mail with a link to this site, encouraging her to attend one of the blood drives. In turn, I've asked her to e-mail all of her minority friends for their help as well. I hope you will keep us posted of your progress on this site. Another close friend of mine just beat cancer for the second time at only 22 years old. I know you can do the same. Keep fighting, and stay strong. You've got a world of support out there.

Much love,

Hi Pia,
We don't know each other, but I was introduced to your website. I too, am in need of stem cell therapy for different medical reasons. I will keep you in my prayers for a speedy recovery.

Dear Pia,
It's been a very long time since we've communicated. I hope and pray for you. I must say, you've changed quite a bit since the last time I saw you!! Can't believe it's the same Pia from R.V!!
Hope we can meet during better times.
Love and hugs,
Meghana Nayak (R.V)

Wed Morning, as a sipped coffee at my desk, clicked on the mouse, saw your beautiful smile looking at me. started reading about you and eyes teared up. I will go today to the blood drive. I was shocked to find out lack of peoples interest or could it be,like me, no one has educated us or it has not been property communicated to our public. I will also be putting out flyers to all indian/business. Gurdwara. etc.
