Insight: The Asian American Donor Program (AADP) / Capitol Chat / Rachel Barton Pine / Sound Advice


 
 
 
Asian American Donor Program (AADP)  Janet Liang, a student of UCLA and sufferer of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, was told by doctors that she has two months to live unless she can find a perfect bone marrow match.  Her chances are slim, what with only 7% of the Asian-American community being registered in the donor program.  Vincent Trinh, a UC Davis student, picked up on this alarming statistic and decided to take action with social media and sense of camaraderie with the UC system.  Through Youtube videos and Facebook pages, he organized a campus bone marrow drive (February 1, 2, 5) that has amassed much attention from the community.  The hope is that together, Janet, Vincent, and the Asian American Donor Program, they will be able to invoke awareness and change not only for Janet but for others in need of matches, as well as the Asian-American community as whole.
