Sad News: Janet Liang Dies from Leukemia

Original post made by Sam, Oak Hill, on Sep 12, 2012

Just read that Amador Valley High graduate and UCLA student Janet Liang passed away after a three year battle with leukemia. Here's the statement from the "Helping Janet Find Her Perfect Match" facebook page:


To all of Janet's loving supporters,

It is with a sad and heavy heart that we announce the passing of Janet Liang.

Janet has served as an inspiration to all those who knew her. Her big heart and big smile was something that we all cherished. And although she never fulfilled her dream of being a teacher, she has taught us all one very important lesson: love. Despite battling leukemia for 3 years, she has always found it within her to make her situation more than about herself. Her campaign to raise awareness and advocate for bone marrow donors was for the love of her fellow human. She has certainly taught all of us to love one another, and live each day as if it were our last. After bravely fighting cancer for three years, she has finally found her peace.

We ask that you provide her family with privacy and respect during this difficult time.

Thank you to all of Janet's supporters. Your outpouring of love and support has always been a constant source of strength for her. Please help to honor her legacy by continuing the fight for leukemia awareness in her memory.
