Mark Lim: Victim at Age 30

By Joel Engardio
Driving my boyfriend home from chemotherapy, we couldn’t believe the ad on the bus in the next lane. We had to read it again at a red light.

The ad warned that one in 10 Asian Americans are infected with hepatitis B and don’t know it — with a quarter of hepatitis B carriers at risk of dying from liver cancer or failure.

Nothing about my boyfriend’s illness made sense until we saw that ad.

At 30, Mark Lim was diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer caused by hepatitis B. He was fit, never drank and symptom-free until the day he doubled over with excruciating stomach pain.

Yet Mark was Asian American. Why didn’t his doctors know about the Asian Liver Center at Stanford University, the sponsor of the bus ad?

The Asian Liver Center was just a basement storage room converted into a cramped office, a symbol of how little the medical establishment had paid attention to hepatitis B in Asian Americans when we visited in 2001.

The director, Dr. Sam So, was a renowned liver transplant surgeon on a mission to end an epidemic of hepatitis B. He called it a “silent killer” of Asian people worldwide.

Mark visited Dr. So but it was too late for treatment. Yet Mark tried to save other lives by sharing his story in the media. After Mark died, I traveled with Dr. So to testify at the CDC in Atlanta.

Dr. So was able to inspire a diverse coalition of philanthropists, politicians, business leaders and students to champion the cause.

The center Dr. So started now has its own building on the Stanford campus and a new generation of activists are making progress.

The bus ad my boyfriend and I saw announced that one in 10 Asian Americans have hepatitis B. Today, the number is one in 12. There is hope.
