Light up sai nitin’s life

Diwali gathers families together for a celebration, rekindles old relationships, and strengthens familial bonds as with any festivity. It is that time of the year when everything around is glittering with light.

This year’s Diwali brings us a relief to celebrate and enjoy festivities as much as we did before the pandemic. We lit up the house with oil lamps to ward away the evil. Though we achieved victory over the destructive covid waves, but the cases for blood cancers and fatal blood related disorders for people are still worrying many. So, many cases are reported each day, and those suffering have no other option than to wait for their one in a million potential blood stem cell donor.

Sai has been one such child searching for a perfect Blood Stem Cell Donor for years now. Seven-year-old Sai from Kolhapur (Maharashtra) was diagnosed with Thalassemia when she was eight months old. Every fifteen days, she must undergo a blood transfusion. We urge you all to register with DATRI to Gift her a new life!

Mrs. Aarti Nitin Nilkanth (Kolhapur, Maharashtra) says, “While learning all about Thalassemia, we came across DATRI, Blood Stem Cell Donors Registry, a not-for-profit organization working towards creating a wide and diverse database of potential Blood Stem Cell Donors that can be accessed by any patient, living anywhere in the world.” She also added, “Today, my daughter Sai is seven-year-old, and DATRI has been our driving force to search for a perfect Blood Stem Cell Donor. It’s my sincere request to each and everyone to please come forward and register with DATRI. This will not only act as a step towards saving my daughter’s life but also increase awareness about the cure available for blood cancer and 100 other fatal blood disorders.”

Every year there is a rise in the number of cases of blood cancer and blood-related disorders, and this endless rise and loss of lives can be reduced by your kind support to us at DATRI. Each and every contribution makes an immense difference.
