We have been overwhelmed by the sudden news of Janet’s passing, but also from the outpouring of prayers, sympathy, kind words, and love for Janet and her family. Thank you for being with us during this difficult time.

To all of Janet’s loving supporters,

It is with a sad and heavy heart that we announce the passing of Janet Liang.

Janet has served as an inspiration to all those who knew her. Her big heart and big smile was something that we all cherished. And although she never fulfilled her dream of being a teacher, she has taught us all one very important lesson: love. Despite battling leukemia for 3 years, she has always found it within her to make her situation more than about herself. Her campaign to raise awareness and advocate for bone marrow donors was for the love of her fellow human. She has certainly taught all of us to love one another, and live each day as if it were our last. After bravely fighting cancer for three years, she has finally found her peace.

We ask that you provide her family with privacy and respect during this difficult time.

Thank you to all of Janet’s supporters. Your outpouring of love and support has always been a constant source of strength for her. Please help to honor her legacy by continuing the fight for leukemia awareness in her memory.

Today, Janet is celebrating her 2nd birthday: the day she receives a marrow transplant and a new chance at life. Please keep Janet in your thoughts and prayers as she undergoes the transplant.

Join us on our 45-day fundraising campaign to wish Janet a happy birthday!

Details are available on our WeDidIt campaign page.

All proceeds raised will fund Janet’s ongoing health care-related expenses.

P.S. Thanks everyone, for pledging $3,405 already! Let’s keep the momentum going.

Day Zero went well :) Like a dying Phoenix rising from its ashes, I was reborn once again (Harry Potter reference heh). Here I am with my donor’s cells seconds before the infusion. More photos to come later!

To all of Janet’s wonderful supporters:

Thank you to everyone for your continued love and support over the past couple years. Tonight is the eve of Janet’s marrow transplant - what we also call her “second birthday.” She will soon be on the road to recovery but will still have many hurdles in the months ahead. 

We have had so many of you reach out to us about how you or your organization can help Janet directly. Beginning tomorrow, you will have the opportunity to do just that.

Stay tuned for more updates. Please continue to keep Janet in your thoughts and prayers as she undergoes her transplant.

-Team Janet

Your prayers always seem to be helping Janet. Here’s the latest from her:

"Via email with my oncologist about my latest bone marrow biopsy check for relapse: 

'Hi Janet - Great news the bone marrow shows 2% blasts consistent with maintained complete remission. Excellent!!!'

What this means is that as I stay within 0-5% I am considered in remission and ready to go for transplant. Repeated tests will show that I am 0% or 1% or 2% once again. They will all fall in this range. I hope I continue to stay this way for the next 12 days since I’ll be admitted for my final run on Aug 19. Wheeee!!!”

Janet wants to develop a soundtrack and give away to other patients and survivors at MD Anderson. What are some of your favorite songs about faith, perseverance, survival, love, bravery, courage, etc.?

Check out the video below and join us and Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches (A3M) at the revamped 626 Night Market next Saturday, July 28th, in Pasadena, CA! Help save a life and enjoy great food and local vendors. 90+ people registered at the last event, and we hope to add even more donors at this one!

"We are all incredibly grateful and we don’t even know how to start thanking people properly,” said Emily Wang, Janet’s best friend and one of the coordinators of the group Helping Janet. “I am truly touched by people’s generosity and kindness and it gives me hope that other patients will find their match, too."

Full article at Oakland North.

"Liang’s fight against acute lymphoblastic leukemia has been a personal battle that started within her family and became a public cause for many of her friends after she started Team Janet. Now, it has spread into a global movement, reaching out to Asians across the United States, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore."
— "For minorities, search for bone marrow donors is a personal struggle," Oakland North.

東灣布利桑頓居民梁嘉欣(Janet Liang)20日宣布,成功找到一名合適的骨髓捐贈者。剛做完將近一個月化療的她,目前已出院休息,並等候最後的檢查報告確定何時進行捐贈手術。

25歲的梁嘉欣在Facebook上發表一則簡訊,表示在不斷搜尋骨髓資料庫後,終於找到一名合適度9分(滿分10分)的男性捐贈者,對方也表示願意接受捐贈手術。主治醫生也試圖從臍帶血庫中尋找適合的捐贈者,並將在近期決定該使用何種移植手術。

梁嘉欣說,她是全美使用新化療藥物的12名病患之一。僅一個化療周期中,癌細胞就從82%驟降到2%。梁嘉欣感謝全世界關心、幫助她的朋友,希望大家一起慶祝好消息,她也會盡全力完成這場馬拉松式的挑戰。

在主治醫生的建議下,梁嘉欣一個月前抵達休士頓癌症中心,嘗試最新的藥物治療。好朋友王蕾說,梁嘉欣已出院休息,狀況良好,目前正在南加州探訪朋友。

美亞骨髓捐贈會(AADP)羅皓兒指出,雖然捐贈者還未經過詳細體檢,不過為了和時間賽跑,雙方將同時進行最後檢查,等檢查報告兩周後出爐,就可以決定手術形式。

梁嘉欣2009年就讀洛杉磯加大四年級時,因急性淋巴細胞白血病發病而休學治療。今年1月底,她在病房自拍影片後上傳到Youtube網站,請求民眾登記骨髓捐贈,救她一命。該影片迄今有37萬網友點閱,連職籃明星林書豪都在臉書上呼籲球迷參加捐贈登記。

羅皓兒表示,梁嘉欣和Jack Chin尋找到合適捐贈者的消息讓人精神一振,但目前灣區仍有一名28歲的越華裔青年陳坤(Khon Tran)正在尋找適當的骨髓捐贈者。從註冊登記、樣本採集到進入骨髓捐贈資料庫需時四周,羅皓兒希望這些好消息可以鼓勵更多華裔民眾進行骨髓登記,幫助更多病患。

"Dr. Lin Teams Up with Fung Brothers, AHMC Health Foundation to Help Janet Liang"

MONTEREY PARK – Inside the lobby of the AHMC International Cancer Center, Dr. Matthew Lin, an Orthopedic Surgeon and co-founder of the Cancer Center, joined Monterey Park Vice Mayor Mitchell Ing, the Fung Brother’s David and Andrew, Tammy and Tony of Team Janet, Geoge Chen President of the Taiwan Benevolent Association of California, Jennifer Renshaw President of the Overseas Chinese Business Exchange, Philip Cohen President of the AHMC Health Foundation, and David Batista CEO of Garfield Medical Center to help raise awareness for Janet Liang who is affected with leukemia and in need of a bone marrow transplant.
“Thank you Vice Mayor Ing and the Fung Brothers for joining us today to raise awareness for Janet who is battling leukemia and needs our help to find a bone marrow donor,” said Dr. Matthew Lin. 
“Asians as a whole are under-represented when it comes to bone marrow transplants compared to other ethnic groups, we need to change this trend if we want to help save the lives of those we love.”
In 2009, Janet Liang was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia while majoring in international development studies at UCLA.  After undergoing several aggressive rounds of chemotherapy, Janet achieved full remission in 2010. Unfortunately, in December 2011, doctors informed her that she had relapsed and is now in need of a bone marrow transplant. To learn more about Janet please visit helpingjanet.com.
