Smart, outgoing, independent 12 year old Vicky Tran was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in November 2011. Her ethnicity makeup is Vietnamese and Chinese, which made her search for a bone marrow donor a little more challenging. After months of searching near and far for her life-saving match, Vicky found a donor and received her transplant in early 2012. With the help of the Asian American Donor Program, Vicky was one of the lucky ones and found a donor in less than a year. What she didn’t know was where and who the donor was. Her donor hero, Vincent Pan, was also in the San Francisco Bay Area. With the help of Vincent, she is currently doing well and recovering nicely post-transplant and treatments.
