DUBLIN -- Funeral services will be held Saturday for Janet Liang, an Amador Valley High School graduate who lost her battle with leukemia in month.

Services will be at 10 a.m at Pathway Community Church, 6533 Sierra lane, Dublin.

Liang, 25, died Sept. 12 after a roughly three-year battle with cancer. She was attending UCLA at the time of her diagnosis, and though she went into remission in June 2010 after a series of chemotherapy treatments, the cancer returned in 2011.

The "Help Janet" campaign, which was launched when Liang was initially diagnosed in 2009, was the main source of keeping family and friends up-to-date on Liang's condition as they searched for a possible bone marrow or stem cell donor.

Donations to Liang's family are being taken by checks payable to Janet Liang and sent to P.O. box 1526, Pleasanton CA 94566; or through PayPal via email with helpingjanet@gmail.com as the recipient.
