A special thanks to:

And of course, the identification of the donor was made possible thanks to the Hopitaux Universitaires de Genève and the Swiss Blood Stem Cells who did coordinate the search worldwide.

Finally, there is also one person whom we should thank above all, we do not know her name, but she is the one who first registered as a donor, and went through the entire process to donate her stem cells for Joon. Wherever she is, our heartfelt gratitude goes to her.
