Diagnosis, Treatment & Bone Marrow Donor Registries

Diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (Blood Cancer) in April 2018 while I was in Spain. Age 32.

Induction chemotherapy started 2 days after diagnosis.

Returned to Hong Kong for 3 rounds of consolidation chemotherapies and a bone marrow transplant.
My wonderful donor match is unrelated and found thanks to the efforts of bone marrow donor registries in Hong Kong and in China.

Bone marrow matches are not easy to find, so if you do match someone, you’re likely the only hope of survival for said someone.
