    Dear Colleagues,

    PwC has partnered with Be-The-Match, a leading non-profit organization to find a match for Kapil, who was recently diagnosed with Myelofibrosis - a rare form of blood cancer. Dr. Kapil Vij, a friend of our PwC Deals Partner Manoj, is a father to two young children, and has a baby due in May. A stem cell transplant is the ONLY cure for this disease and there is currently no match in the bone marrow registry.

    The match identification process takes only 5 minutes and is painless. The process involves a cheek swab that would be used to determine a match not just for Kapil, but also for many other blood cancer patients who are in need of help.

    Please find the logistics below:

    Date  Friday, May 5th  Friday, May 12th 
    Time 11AM - 2PM 11AM - 2PM
    Location

    Conference Room “Michigan 2”
