Lillian is a happy 7-year-old. Lillian found a donor and had her transplant in August 2021! We are so happy for her and her family. They have been through so much. Here is her story.
Despite having witnessed her older brother’s childhood #leukemia journey, she grew up to be joyful and vibrant. Unfortunately, due to a genetic mutation, Lillian herself was diagnosed with #AML in September 2020. Her best chance for a cure was a #bonemarrowtransplant. Because of her Chinese descent, she needed a donor from a similar ethnic background. However, Chinese donors only make up 0.7% of the national donor registry, leaving Lillian with only a 43% chance of finding a match. But, we are so happy to report that she found a donor and had a transplant. Let’s hope this family can now move on from health issues and start living life of fun and adventure.
