2011-8-3: Help Yimin Yu and his Family!
2011-8-3 : Donate to Yimin Yu and his Family.
In 1978 and at the age of 16, Dr. Yimin Yu entered Peking University to study cell biology. Upon graduation, he was admitted to the Institute of Developmental Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, to further his studies. After receiving a Master Degree, he came to the U.S. to attend Emory University in Atlanta, where he received a Ph.D. in life sciences. From 2005 to 2009, he was an assistant professor at the University of Pennsylvania, researching on Toll-like receptor-mediated innate immune mechanisms. In 2010, he accepted a faculty position at the Wenzhou College of Medicine to become one of its leading scientists in modern biotechnology.
While dedicating himself to teaching and researching, in June, 2011 he was diagnosed with a late stage of liver cancer at the University of Pennsylvania. Overnight, a vibrant and life-loving Dr. Yimin Yu was thrown to the edge of death. Today, with his cancer cells spreading, he struggles with unrelenting pain day and night, fighting for his life.
A man of optimism and sincerity, Dr. Yimin Yu has always been truthful, friendly and ready to lend a helping hand to others. Despite living on a limited income, he has never hesitated to donate generously when disasters such as the Wenchuan earthquake occurred. Even in his forties, his smiles and laughter are still as pure and touching as that of a boy's, and his embraces always convey strength and warmth. It is hard to believe that a man like him, a constant source of joy for his friends and a dedicated disease fighter for mankind, is now fighting fiercely for his own life.
Now lying in his Philadelphia’s hospice bed, without employment income and health insurance in the U.S., Dr. Yu only finds a challenging financial situation with his urgent needs for medical treatment, and with two young children. Donations from his friends and other generous people are urgently needed to help Dr. Yimin Yu and family live through this hard time. Your help is greatly appreciated.
