Resurrecting Kevin's Blog After Six Years...
August 14, 2014
The Summer of 2008 is when my cousin, Michell Gip experimented with
Beike Biotech and went in for treatment for an entire month in
Qingdao. In May 2009, I went to China to make myself a test subject
for stem cell therapy. This was an attempt to create a solution for a
problem that I experienced when I was 14. A decade ago, three of my
cousin's (10 years old girl, 5 YO boy, and 12 YO boy) on my mother
side of the family, and I were diagnosed with: Leber hereditary optic
neuropathy (LHON).
Since October, 2009, I had Twitter.com/KevinChao89 and handed the
Twitter account over to my significant other in June 2014. Our
joint-personal Twitter handle is: https://twitter.com/janicem2020 and
our business handle is: https://twitter.com/probizmgmt
On 10/1/12, I was ask to RSVP - Skype Closed Beta Days 2012.
Below is the letter I received:
