Bone Marrow Drive for Northern Suburbs – Sujith

TAWA is supporting another donor drive on Saturday 27th August 2016 from 10am to 4pm at the Mary Mac Killop Church Hall.

Please bring your ID and support Sujith and other non Caucasian around the world who may be facing the same illness.

Sujith Nayar, who was raised in Perth and moved to Brisbane for work, has just finished his sixth and final round of chemotherapy for acute lymphoblastic leukaemia. The Murdoch University graduate urgently needs a bone marrow transplant but all he can do is wait and hope. Since he was told there were no matches on the international registry, his relatives have organised events in cities across Australia, India and the US to recruit potential donors.

They are particularly eager to draw Indians to the cause because Mr Nayar is more likely to find a match among people of a similar ethnicity. There are only 176,000 people on the Australian bone marrow donor registry and the overwhelming majority of them are Caucasian. Caucasians actually make up over 80 per cent of the registry worldwide. We need more non Caucasians, particularly in our Indian community supporting this drive.

It is great to see TAWA pioneers among the crowd. All of them enjoyed the cultural and entertaining programmes. Big Thanks to our TAWA’s Thendral group and dancers. Besides, all the guests were treated with delicious veg and non-vegetarian south Indian food prepared by Mrs. Vene Stephen and TAWA committee’s Family members. It was a meaningful fun night.

The guests went one step ahead and donated more at the event to round off the donation to bushfire. In total we collected over $2000 at the event. This shows our members are generous and supports a good cause at any time. Performers were awarded appreciation certificates for their volunteering and participating.
