Donations for Joan Xie Qiong Urgently Needed
My former student, Joan Xie Qiong, has leukemia and after two rounds of chemo was seemingly in good shape. But the docs have said it looks like the cancer has reached her bones. There is a bone marrow donor ready, and the procedure could happen as soon as Monday, but the hospital won’t proceed until Joan and her mom can show they can pay for it. Their crowdfunding campaign in China is only about 25% funded right now, which is not enough. So, I’ve coordinated with Joan’s bestie, who has a PayPal account, to solicit donations from the USA and elsewhere. The exchange rate now is about 7 RMB to the dollar, so a little bit can go a long way.

Ivy is another former student of mine (Joan’s classmate and roommate), and I can vouch for her honesty. If you’d rather drop some money my way instead, I can forward it to Joan myself.
