Wonderful, hopeful, new update from +Amit Gupta:


"… After over 100 drives organized by friends, family, and strangers, celebrity call-outs, a bazillion reblogs (7000+!), tweets, and Facebook posts, press, fundraising and international drives organized by tireless friends, and a couple painful false starts, I’ve got a 10/10 matched donor!

You all literally helped save my life. (And the lives of many others.)"
Many of you have asked, so here’s what’s going on with me. WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE • 8/1979: Born. Grew up in CT, built a killer eraser collection, fell in love with computers. • Left college to start a....

We're here to help Amit Gupta find a bone marrow match
Introduction
We're here to help Amit Gupta find a bone marrow match!

Amit Gupta is a geek and tech entrepreneur. He started a popular website, Photojojo, and when he sends people products from the site, he includes a couple of plastic dinosaurs — just for fun. That's the kind of guy he is: selfless, caring, honest. He's our friend. He's only 32 years old!

He was diagnosed with acute leukemia very suddenly this fall, and he needs to find a bone marrow match by November 30th, 2011!

Please check out amitguptaneedsyou.com for the drive near you, or order you swab kit online at marrow.org.
