26-year-old Lu Lu, a financial analyst on Bay Street, was originally from the Northern part of China. She was just diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in June 2012 at Princess Margaret Hospital and is now desperately searching for an unrelated matched donor for a stem cell transplant. Prior to her diagnosis, Lu Lu was in perfect health. Because she is an only child, her only hope for survival is to find an unrelated matched stem cell donor for transplant. Since the likelihood of finding a match is far greater within one’s own ethnic group, more new donors from Mainland China are needed in Canadian Blood Services Stem Cell and Marrow Network.
And Lulu found a match! She had her transplant in November 2012! We’re all sending her our best wishes for a speedy recovery.
