25-year-old Janet Liang was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2009 in her last semester in UCLA. Recently she posted a very powerful video as she searched for a bone marrow match. In the video, Janet says” I am so afraid of dying. It feels like I don’t have much time.”

Janet has been hospitalized at UCSF medical center for over a month. According to Janet’s doctor, she needs to find a bone marrow match within two months. Janet asks people especially Chinese to register as a bone marrow donor to save her life.

The Asian American Donor Program is organizing a series of bone marrow registration drives this Saturday for Janet Liang and other leukemia patients.
