I co-founded AME with the intent to bridge the gap and to reduce the shocking underrepresentation of Asian and Middle Eastern communities on the stem cell bone marrow registers. Having seen families affected by blood cancer, struggling to find a suitable donor, I am enthused to take AME nationwide and beyond.

The work they do is so vital yet so overlooked I was inspired to join to be a part of the miraculous work they do to give those in need of stem cells a second chance by saving their lives.

When diagnosed with blood cancer you face a daunting road to recovery, filled with extremely harsh treatments and strong side effects. I want to make it easier for a stem cell donor to be found for patients in need
