Our friend Amit Gupta, founder of Photojojo, was recently diagnosed with leukemia. Currently, he is at Connecticut’s Smilow Cancer Center in Yale-New Haven Hospital getting treatment and cannot see visitors yet. His friends in the photography and tech communities have been rallying together to show their support and love in several ways.
Chrysanthe Tenentes of Foursquare got the ball rolling with a message on her blog:
Amit loves: photos, jokes, mac & cheese, bright colors.
Send photos, cards, candygrams, etc. to him:
Yale-New Haven Hospital
Amit Gupta 11 220
Smilow Cancer Center 11 North

New Haven, CT 06511

The Yale-New Haven Hospital also has an online board to send patients messages.
The Next Web reports that David Noël of SoundCloud has created a space where well-wishers can send sound-based messages to Amit via SoundCloud’s Dropbox integration feature.
Doc Pop of Postagram has set up a code for folks to send Amit a free get-well-soon Postagram.
All of us here at Laughing Squid wish Amit a quick recovery and send our best to him.
