Dear Tsinghua Alumni Associations in North America,
I wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season.
In the deepest sorrow, I would like to share with you sad news about a
Dr. Wangwang Jiao, age 29, a young Tsinghua alumnus and a
post-doctoral fellow at Tufts University, passed on in Brigham and
Women Hospital in Boston on Sunday, December 14, 2008, following
8-month courageous battle with cancer.
Wangwang is survived by his wife, Lei Yang, a graduate student at
Bentley College, and twin baby boys who were born in April 2008, 20
days after Wangwang was diagnosed with cancer.
THAA-Boston has been making effort to help Wangwang and his family in
the past months. Now we are working with other friends in Boston area
who share the same compassion to help Wangwang's family. Among others,
one of the most initiatives is to raise fund to help his family to go
through this difficult situation. I wish you and Tsinghua alumni in
you area can join this effort.
