Binbing was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in May 2014. After her diagnosis, she began monthly chemotherapy treatments. Low blood counts resulted in serious infections during every cycle of chemotherapy. Binbingâ€™s type of AML, which included a high risk of relapse, could only be cured with a bone marrow transplant. Fortunately, she had a good match with an unrelated donor. She received her transplant in January 2015. Words are not enough to express how grateful Binbing is to her donor. She wants to thank all people who register as bone marrow donors because of the hope they bring to blood cancer patients. Binbing will not be able to work until one year post-transplant. She is grateful for any assistance, which will help cover her rent and living expenses as she recovers.
