In lieu of wedding gifts, Paras and Sarah ask that you donate to the Washington University Relay for Life. WashU Relay and the American Cancer Society hold a very special place in the hearts of Paras and Sarah. Both chose to participate in Relay for Life during undergrad because they each had been impacted by cancer. Paras and his sister Neha losing their mother at a very young age, and Sarah losing her Grandmama and dealing with her Dad's diagnosis at the time (he's all better now!). Despite the bad that cancer brings it also brought Paras and Sarah together, in fact it was because of Relay that they first met.
