Amit Gupta first appeared on The Takeaway in October, three weeks after being diagnosed with leukemia, to discuss his experiences trying to find a bone marrow donor. Amit is of South Indian descent, and South Indians are severely under-represented in the donor pool. His friend Seth Godin, who writes for the popular blog, offered $10,000 to the first person to be a donor match with Amit.

This was one of the Takeaway's most popular segments of the year with Takeaway listeners. Amit Gupta comes back on the program to with an update on his situation since October.
