On the night of Feb 3rd, 2010, Yi-Chao Wang, a talented visiting Stanford graduate student from China was struck by a car and received a severe head injury while bicycling home from his labratory on Stanford campus.
Yichao Wang passed away at 4:30pm on Feb 19th 2010 peacefully.
Yi-Chao’s parents have come all the way from China to see their only son in the hospital. His family is now in an extremely difficult financial situation because his parents are both retired and receive only a few hundred US dollars a month from their pensions. His father, who had colon cancer three years ago, is also suffering from severe heart disease. The whole family is suffering both mentally and physically.
Yi-Chao's insurance benefits were exhausted by the surgery,and cost of hospitalization has been a huge burden on Yi-Chao’s family. Yi-Chao's colleagues and friends are motivated and are doing their best to support Yi-Chao and his family.
CMAIN organized a donation event from 02-10-2010 to 02-25-2010, raised over $50,000 donation from about 900 donors. We will transfer all these donations to Yichao family. The donation event deadline is 02-25-2010 11:59PM PST.
Every year, many young foreign students come to USA, pursue their dream, but many of them are not familier with U.S rules, so many tragedies, so many broken hearts in so many related families.
CMAIN established "Yichao Fund" . We will use it to improve Californian campus safety environment, with the goal of preventing traffic tragedy. We will distribute helmets, safety lights, brochure etc. and organize safety seminars in Universities periodically. We will try to keep this project running every year.
