Leni Hsiao continues treatment for AMKL at Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital. Until finished with her chemo rounds, the future of Leni’s treatment is unknown but can include a liver transplant and/or a Bone Marrow transplant. A search for a Bone Marrow match covered both coasts. A match was found but there is still a desperate need to grow the registry for mixed race and Asian people like Chinese/Jewish Leni. The Young and Brave will be on-hand to answer any questions you may have about AMKL or how you can save a life by joining the National Bone Marrow Registry.
The auction was co-curated as a labor of love with the help of Antoinette V. Cardenas, Sophia Chang, Charlie Becker and Vantage Process. It was produced and co-curated by Genevieve McCaw and could not have been possible without Slow Culture Gallery.
