Savina, Sudha, and Ajay Kumar are raising funds for Amyloidosis research in support of their mother, Renu Kumar, who was diagnosed with Amyloidosis in February 2011. In May 2011, Renu underwent stem cell transplantation at the Boston University Amyloid Treatment and Research Program under the care of Dr. Vaishali Sanchorawala. Currently she is reported to have near complete response to treatment.
Savina Kumar will also be participating in a 5k race on October 28th at Massapequa Park, NY to raise funds and increase Amyloidosis awareness. Donations can be made via her fundraising web page (http://www.youcaring.com/fundraiser_details?url=amyloidosisresearchfund&fundraiser_id=9457) or via the Amyloid Program Website.
All proceeds will benefit the Boston University Amyloid Treatment and Research Program. Special thanks to Ashley Glackmeyer and Stephine Findley for joining in the fundraising effort.
