THE STORY:

My dear and beautiful friend Swati Patel succumbed to kidney cancer on Sunday morning, June 2, 2013. I met her back in 2000 through the IT Associate Training Program at SolomonSmithBarney. We became instant friends and kept in touch ever since. No matter how busy life got, we always made a point to meet and catch up. I'll always cherish those moments. To those who were blessed enough to know her, Swati was the most genuine, warm, kind-hearted individual you could ever meet. She didn't want to tell me about her illness and when she finally did, she was more concerned about how I would take the news. That was just like her---putting others before herself. Swati would say to me on numerous occasions "Carpe Diem". She knew how short and precious life was and definitley lived by her mantra. She touched countless lives and the world is just a little bit darker now that she's gone. I miss my friend. Please help me to raise money as I run the ING NYC Marathon this year for the Kidney Cancer Association in rememberance of the light Swati brought to this world. Thank you so much...
