Amy Thompson is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Yao Liu.
In a sad turn of events on the evening of Friday, June 23rd, Yao Liu's husband, Xiaosun Lu, was killed in a car accident. Yao is an international student from China at the University of South Florida and is my Ph.D. advisee. She is finishing her graduate work, is teaching Chinese and Applied Linguistics courses, and is hoping to still be able to graduate this year as planned. Her daughter, Alice, will start kindergarten this year in Tampa. A bit of financial support to help with the traveling needed for services and moving Xiaosun's belongings from Ohio where he had been working, as well as the aftermath of the events, will be very helpful to Yao in the next few months. Please give what you can - any amount will help.
