Alice and Andrew Kong are stuck in every parent’s nightmare.
Their 2-year-old son, Jeremy, was diagnosed in June with a rare and aggressive form of leukemia and he needs a bone-marrow transplant to survive.
The Kong family now is racing against time to find a matching donor. If one is not found within the next six weeks, Jeremy would undergo a fourth round of chemotherapy, further endangering him by reintroducing more toxins to his little body.
The Kong family has been assisted in their search by the Asian American Donor Program, an Alameda-based nonprofit devoted to recruiting people to donate bone marrow and/or stem cells for patients in need.
