To speed up the matching process for Pia ....

PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS

To speed up the matching process for Pia, request a copy of your 'HLA typing' when you get tested. Please ask on the day how you can best obtain this information.

When you have your HLA typing (it might take 4 - 6 weeks), please fax it directly to Sinda Lee at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Make it clear that you are sending the fax in relation to patient Pia Awal. She will check whether or not you are a potential match.

The fax details are:
Attn: Sinda Lee, Transplant Coordinator
Re: Pia Awal
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
Fax: 212-717-3318

If you do not have access to a fax machine, you can also send your results by email to Friends of Pia. Just click here.

Hi Pia:
This is Nikhil from our RV class. Just got an email about your condition, well, I had done typing for a far relative of mine... as they said that there are more chances of a match in one's own indigenous community. I can post/email the results as soon as I fetch them.
I am in Bay Area now, far away, but am happy to note the support from friends back in the East.
Stand tough, thats the way you've always been.

Regards,
Nikhil P.
