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.

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.
