Hi fellow Team members,
* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * I just heard from my aunt, that one of my far off cousins in the US is suffering from Leukemia.

She was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML), a cancer of the blood and the bone marrow. It is a disease where immature white blood cells reproduce at an alarming rate. Unable to produce healthy blood cells, the body is susceptible to infection and suffers from intense fatigue, bone pain, nausea, and respiratory problems.

All i ask from fellow Team members is to offer any kind of help possible, even if it means spreading the word around.

For further info, you guys can check out the website below

Any kind of help will be appreciated guys.
Thanks.
Salil.

How exactly are they going to treat this? Does this involve a "Bone Marrow" transplant or a blood donation?
