Fil-Am engineer searches for stem cell donor in his fight against leukemia

LOS GATOS, CA — A Filipino American husband and father needs help. And he needs it now.

Due to a certain type of cancer — he needs a fellow Filipino to donate some stem cells in order for him to live.

For the past two years — Rowell Sotto, a Silicon Valley software engineer, has been battling chronic myeloid leukemia — or CML.

Sotto treats his CML with targeted therapy — where drugs are used to target the cancer’s specific genes, proteins, or tissue environment.

However, his best way to beat the disease is through a stem cell transplant.

If you are interested in becoming a donor, text “Rowell” to 6-1-4-7-4.
