After hiking in the Sequoias in early July, Aaron’s doctors first thought he’d caught a virus. His joint pains and fevers persisted and, shortly after his 33rd birthday, Aaron was diagnosed with stage IV diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. As of October, Aaron has completed his second round of brutal high-dose chemotherapy.
A proud “double Bruin”, Aaron received both his BA and MBA at UCLA (classes of 2004 and 2014). Throughout this time, Aaron spread his infectious smile, generosity, and kindness as a mentor and active member in different community organizations.
Aaron’s family and friends are urgently helping him search for a bone marrow match in hopes of a transplant early next year. Being of both Chinese and Jewish heritage makes finding a donor more difficult. Help us find a match for Aaron, and patients like him, by registering to be a donor.
Aaron is committed to winning this fight and facing each day with a positive outlook. Please join and share this page for updates and to help find Aaron’s cure.
