Bo Yang's Stomach Cancer Expenses

My friend, Bo Yang, was recently diagnosed with late-stage stomach cancer and is no longer able to work.  I am asking for your help in relieving the financial strain that the disease has placed on him.

When Bo was diagnosed a few months ago, he was newly married, with a promising career, and a bright future ahead of him.  Now, he has had his world turned upside down.  He is no longer able to work and can't draw a salary.  Instead of planning for his future with his wife, he is stuck in the day to day battle of the present.

The disease could not have hit a nicer guy.  Thoughtful and generous to a fault, Bo has always been willing to go out of his way to support his friends, offering words of encouragement and little gifts.  He is the guy who remembered your birthday and bought you a cake or took you out to lunch because he wanted to try something new or share a place that he loves. 

We are seeking to raise $30,000 on his behalf to help defray some of his medical and living expenses, and ease the burden on his family.  I am asking for donations of $100.00 or more.  But, if that is too much, then any amount that you can give would be appreciated.
