Welcome Nikhil!

Lacuna Loft is excited to continue introducing some guest bloggers! These great folks represent a variety of perspectives on the myriad of topics covered here at Lacuna Loft. Before everyone starts really getting into the nitty-gritty of all they have to say, we wanted to introduce them a bit. Without further ado, here is Nikhil!

Nikhil was diagnosed with AML in 2011, and has had 2 bone marrow transplants from matched unrelated donors, the last in 2013. Despite getting sick in his final year of high school, he’s managed to get into medical school, and started writing a blog to both help other patients out and try and convince doctors and future doctors to understand, and care more for their patients. He aspires to find the cure, and is working on immunotherapeutic research right now, and has also started his own social enterprise, PlayWell.
