Our friend, Sameer Bhatia, was just diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML), which is a cancer of the blood. He is in urgent need of a bone marrow transplant. Sameer is a Silicon Valley entrepreneur, is 31 years old and just got married in 2006. His diagnosis was confirmed just weeks ago and caught us all by surprise. He received a transplant in October of 2007.
It brings us much sorrow to inform you that Sameer has passed away due to complications. Sameer went through so much and his friends and family worked tirelessly to make sure he received a transplant. But, he has been called to a higher place and our prayers are with him. We also pray for his friends and family.
