From 2 weeks to live, to 2 years in remission
“Thank you for the gift of time”
For the past two years, Nguyen ‘Thai’ Dang and wife Diamond Tran have hosted a very special celebration and the guests of honour include Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH) Cancer Care staff. The couple use the celebration to present their annual donation for cancer research. They are acutely aware of how RBWH gave Thai the gift of time.
“I have cheated death a few times before, so doing good things for others has been our normal way of life,” explained Thai.
In 2019, Thai was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML), a type of cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow. Chemotherapy failed so he was referred to the RBWH Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) unit – the largest in Australia.
Twelve months later, the couple received long-awaited news that the transplant had been successful. Thai is now in remission. Thai’s life would not have been saved if years of medical and clinician-led research had not been conducted. You can help save more lives by supporting vital research and patient care projects.
