Farewell Arya

June 7, 2010

The Institute for Justice lost a dear young friend and one of our most courageous fighters for freedom:  Arya Majumder, who died of cancer on April 25.  IJ represents Arya’s father, Kumud, in our challenge to the provisions of the National Organ Transplant Act that ban offering incentives to attract more bone marrow donors and make offering even nominal compensation a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.  Kumud and his wife, Swati, have expressed their desire to fight on in Arya’s memory to work to ensure others who suffer from blood cancers will have a better chance of finding a matching marrow donor.

All of Arya’s many friends at IJ will miss his wonderful sense of humor and a maturity that belied his youth.
