At the tender age of five, Chen Xiaotian was diagnosed with a fatal brain tumour which made him blind. The news of his imminent death was devastating for his small family.Worse yet, his mother, Zhou Lu, was diagnosed with a severe kidney illness, menacing her life as well. It is at this juncture that a fateful decision was made.
That's the little Chen in his mother's arms. This picture was taken during happier days, as no one suspected what lied ahead of them.
One springlike April morning, little Chen fell asleep for the last time. The transplant was prepared as quickly as possible. But beforehand, something amazing happens: all the doctors bow to the little Chen to salute his courage.
Without losing anytime, the transplant is started and performed successfully. Zhou's body adopts the kidney and she recovers rapidly.
In addition to his mother, Chen saved two others as well. His heroic behaviour is a shining example for selflessness and profound motherly love. Not only does he have the respect of his surgeons, he has the respect of the whole world.
Share the story of Chen and his mother. So that this boy's selflessness may inspire others.
