NU’EST‘s Baekho revealed that his father was diagnosed with acute leukemia and is asking for fans’ help.
On April 8, Baekho posted on his Instagram and NU’EST’s fan café, “This early morning, my father went to the hospital because his nosebleed wouldn’t stop. He has been diagnosed with a disease called ‘acute leukemia,’ and he needs urgent blood transfusions.” He added, “I’m sorry for asking for something like this but if you have blood donation cards, please mail them to Seoul, Gangnam-gu, Samsung-dong, 44-20 (Baekho blood donation card).” He clarified that the blood type doesn’t matter.
He then concluded, “I’m sorry for the sudden bad news. Thank you.”
Acute leukemia is a type of blood cancer which the patient may present with anemia, recurrent infections, and unstoppable bleeding, requiring a variety of blood transfusions. The only cure for some types of it is bone marrow transplant.
Please keep Baekho and his father in your prayers.
