Glory Hom is an intelligent and ambitious 20 year old paving her way to success.She was pursuing her studies at Wellsley College in Boston MA. As she was making her mark in the world, Glory's plans for sucess took a different route.

On March 2005, She was diagnosed with Acute Myloblastic Leukemia (A.M.L.)

However, fighting for her health was not new to Glory. She had previously braved a tumor that was removed from her leg when she was diagnosed with Osterosarcoma.

Glory Hom: pride and joy of Pastor and Mrs. Royos Hom

Although, this new battle with A.M.L. was different. Glory's hopes for survival depended on unrelated donors to become potential marrow / stem matches. It was no longer up to Glory but for others to help.

As a result, the Chinese community all over the United States responded to her plea. Hundreds became potential marrow / stem cell donors and were added to the National Marrow Donor Program Registry. Many of these potential donors became more educated about this aggressive disease. They became aware of her plight and the plight of many others who suffer from leukemia and other blood related disorders.

Fortunately, Glory found a match through an umbilical cord blood transplant. Her spirits are strong and she is on her way to a quick and speedy recovery. Despite all odds, Glory, did make her mark in this world by inspiring so many people to make a difference in the lives of others.

Congratulations and Best Wishes to Glory!!!
