Urgent need for bone marrow

Our very good friend, Amir Ghazanfarian, is in dire need of your help. Amir, who graduated from Stanford University last October with a PhD in Electrical Engineering, is suffering from an acute case of Lymphoma. He needs to receive a bone marrow transplant within the next 30 days.

I urge you all to please help him by doing a simple blood test. Please note that it will take about two weeks for your test results to appear in the Bone Marrow Donation Registry data base. So, please get tested ASAP.

There is a charge for doing the test. But, the charge will be waived if you agree to donate a pint of your blood at the same time. (If you have difficulty with donating blood or if you have any other concerns, please contact us immediately.)

You can call the Stanford Blood Center at (650) 723-5532 M-F 8:30am-4pm to make an appointment. You can also find out where is the nearest center to you that does this test by calling 1-800-marrow-2 or visiting When you're making the appointment please make sure to mention that it is for the National Marrow Donation Program.

If you have already been tested for bone marrow transplant you don't need to do it again. Your results are in the data base. Also, please note that the Stanford Blood Center cannot process more than 2-3 tests per day. So please get an appointment today!

Amir, a recipient of International Math Olympiad Medal and 1st student in his class (92) at Sharif University of Technology, received his MS and PhD from Stanford in less than 4 years! He is a national treasure, as well as our wonderful, caring friend. He is 28 years old. PLEASE help him now!
