NDTV: Campaign Underway to Save Life of Stanford Professor. @Stanford #SouthAsian #IndianAmerican



Nalimby AmbadyNalini Ambady, the mother of two girls and the first woman professor working in the psychology department at Stanford University, is in desperate need of a life saving bone marrow transplant.

According to NDTV, doctors have given her six weeks to find the cells she needs to save her life. The most likely match would come from her family, but doctors have already determined there is no match to be found from her family.

Any match would likely come from the Indian or South Asian community. Her family and friends have launched a drive in India. They have purchased ads in newspapers and contacted various Malayalee associations.

Ambady suffer from a rare kind of blood cancer.

The bone marrow registry in India has just 25,000 people, well short of the 500,000 needed to match the genetic variations the country has.
