Her words make many burst into tears. Recently, this 7-year-old little girl who suffers from a rare bone disease passed all of her savings to her father. Her intention was a heartbreaking one – for her father to use her coins for her baby sister’s treatment. Apparently, her sister also suffers from the same disease.
This touching story was reported to happen in Hunan, China. According to China Press, the girl named Wang Yue was diagnosed with Osteoporosis, a disease where the patient’s bones are so weak they are susceptible to fracture.
Its symptoms include, bone fracture, low blood cell production, loss of cranial nerve function which can lead to blindness, deaf and facial stroke.
Wang Yue’s condition is getting worse day by day and she could die anytime. However, she refused to get modern treatment and just drinks traditional Chinese medicine every day.
This is because of she wanted to save up money for her one-year-old baby sister’s treatment
In spite of her bad condition, Wang Yue still continues studying. It was during one her class lessons that she realised her eye sight was getting worse. She even has a hard time to read books.
Fortunately, her parents found the right bone marrow donor for her. The donor had to undergo health checkup before the procedure was done. They also planned for both of their daughters to undergo bone marrow transplant. However, one bone marrow transplant costs 500,000 Chinese Yuan (approximately, RM 320, 000) and this is not including the cost of post-surgery treatments.
Her father had used up all of his bank savings for their early treatments
After borrowing money from close relatives and friends, Wang Yue’s father managed to raise 200, 000 Chinese Yuan (around RM 127, 500).
Sadly, realising that only one of them could undergo the surgery, Wang Yue told her father, “Since we can’t manage to borrow so much money, I will give up on the treatment then. I have some savings here, combine it with the money you borrowed to save my sister,” she said.
“I’m big already, it doesn’t matter if I don’t undergo the treatment. Here’s some money that I’ve saved up, please take it,” she added while handing over her coins to her father.
Her father received Wang Yue’s coins with shaky hands and tears streaming down his cheeks
This heartbreaking story has received viral attention from the public. Right now, a fundraising has been set up.
