Dr. Jennifer Aaker, General Atlantic Professor of Marketing at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, tells the inspirational story of Sameer Bhatia and Vinay Chakravarthy, two friends who were diagnosed with leukemia. Their mutual friends were spurred to act and through social media started a movement for South Asian leukemia patients everywhere. Dr. Aaker explains how happiness was created through what on the surface was a sad event.
