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.
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.?

Dear co-survivors: Happy news abound. I am the 12th patient in the US to undergo this immunotherapy drug — and I am finally in remission. My blasts went from 82% to 2% remaining in only one cycle of the drug.
I also have finally found a match - a 9/10 male donor. It’s not perfect, but I can’t complain! But now we are also looking for matches in the cord blood registry. My doctors and I will decide which route to go.
Wherever you are, please turn up the radio and let’s have a global dance party! :)
Thank you everyone for all your hard work. Now it’s on me to finish the marathon."
Just 3 DAYS left before the PERFECT 10, a very special benefit concert to fund Janet’s treatments and raise money for community organizations helping to register bone marrow donors! All of us are still searching for Janet’s perfect 10/10 match.

“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.
