Support for Kevin Bo

Haili Su was a wonderful mother, clinician, and scientist from China. She and her son, Kevin Bo, lived in the United States in 2011-2012 while Haili was receiving advanced clinical training.  During this time, Kevin loved and thrived in the American school system.  After returning to China following the completion of her training, Kevin deeply wanted to come back to the United States.  So despite a very successful career in China, in 2016 Haili found a position in my research laboratory and moved back to the United States for the educational opportunities it would afford her son, Kevin. 

Since 2016, Kevin has been doing great. He attends middle school, is involved in many activities including playing the violin for the school orchestra, is doing well academically, and most importantly is very happy. Really, the only thing missing from Haili and Kevin's lives was Haili's husband and Kevin's father, Bin Bo.  So 9 months ago, they made the difficult decision for Bin to quit his job as a maxillofacial surgeon in China and move to the United States to join Haili and Kevin. The last nine months have been a tremendously happy time for them.33709184_1539430453984480_r.jpeg
One challenge however has been that they have only had Haili's salary to support them. Since Bin arrived, he has been improving his English in order to seek a job (which is allowed as part of his US issued visa). The financial challenge took a terrible turn for the worse the week of Oct 8.  That week Haili suffered an entirely unexpected stroke that shortly thereafter took her life.  She had a beautiful life that exemplified, love, dedication, brilliance, and joy.

Now Bin and Kevin are left to pick up the pieces.  This fundraiser is to help support the immediate needs of Kevin over the coming few months. These include funds to help pay for living expenses (housing, food, etc.) and legal fees (as their support system works to figure out the best way to continue Kevin's education as he was a dependent on his Mom's visa).   In the midst of grieving for his wife, supporting his son, and taking care of the myriad tasks associated with the passing of a spouse, Bin is also doing everything he can to obtain a legal job in the United States to allow Kevin to continue his schooling here and also be with his friends for the support they can offer him during this terribly difficult time.  Please consider donating funds to help them during the next few months. Funds donated will be accessible to Bin only and he will have full discretion on determining the best way to use the funds to support Kevin.
