Please help me save my husband Danny Ximing Wu!
Ximing Wu was recently diagnosed with end stage liver cancer and I would like to ask for your help. Aside from being a wonderful, loving father and husband, Ximing is a 35-year-old postdoc at the Massachusetts General Hospital Transplant Science Center.

I cannot imagine how much pain my husband is in each day as his health worsens. I still remember the first time I met Ximing, when my father was ill in the hospital. His kindness and tolerance inspired me. We then fell in love and got married.
Our daughter Anine was born two years ago. Ximing was always a dedicated man, often working late nights and early mornings in surgery. As a wife, I really understood his situation and supported his work without any complaints. He then successfully received a postdoc position in Boston which also required long work hours. During this time, I remained in China to take care of our daughter. I hoped we would be able to reunite soon and live a normal life just like other families.
But several days ago, I received the horrible news of my husband’s diagnosis. My world almost collapsed. I came to visit him in June and found him fatigued and wasting away, unlike ever before. At first I thought maybe he was just too tired and was lacking rest, but in reality he was suffering from black stool and severe abdominal pain. A few days later, on June 22nd, we went to see a doctor and Ximing was diagnosed with late stage liver cancer. We are now waiting for the results of the biopsy to determine his future treatment plan.
It is unfortunate that we were unable to find the cancer earlier. Our baby needs a father. I don’t want to see him lying on his bed, unable to make a video call to our daughter. I know he never stops working for his dreams, for me and for our kid. However, the large amount of money necessary for treatment is going to be a burden for our family. The estimated cost for the liver transplant is about $100,000. If anyone is able, we are asking for any support you can offer to help with the costs of the cancer treatment. We thank all our friends, family, and in some cases those we don’t know for their love, support, concern, and prayers for Ximing’s recovery.
Thank you all in advance.
