Charlie Wang is a 9 year old boy who many in our community grew to love when his family lived and worked in Lee County. His family relocated to the Savannah area a couple of years ago so that dad could take a job there. Originally from China, Charlie’s family has grown to love the States and especially appreciate the quality of health care he was able to receive when he was going through treatment for cancer. Charlie had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) when he was 3 years old. He finished his treatment in April 2018 and spent two years cancer-free. But in October of this year, during a routine check-up, his doctor found some abnormalities in his bloodwork. Further testing led to a diagnosis of Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), believed to be related to his Leukemia treatment. MDS is a very rare illness for kids (about six cases in a million children), and bone marrow transplantation (BMT) is currently the only treatment. Charlie is now in chemotherapy for 4 months which will be immediately followed by a BMT at Children’s Health Care in Atlanta. Charlie’s BMT will require a donor and at this time there are five potential donors. Though critically ill, Charlie tries to make the most out of every single day. He loves to play basketball, loves math at school, and ALWAYS has a smile on his face and a sparkle in his eyes!
