India needs more bone marrow donors is something that Abhishek Sinha and Shubda from Bangalore highlighted during the NDTV-Fortis Cancerthon. Abhishek was detected with a rare form of blood cancer. His only symptoms were fever and a small injury which was taking a long time to heal. After his diagnosis, they had to look for a bone marrow match which they did not find within the family. They searched globally and found a match in the United States. The bone marrow had to be flown into India within a certain time frame and the transplant was successfully done at CMC, Vellore. Now he is cancer free and has two beautiful children and they have banked the stem cells of both his children.
