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.

Just after Chen turned 5, the horrific diagnosis came: a giant brain tumour threatened his life with no escape. Soon afterwards, Chen lost his eyesight. But his mother did not leave his side.

For days on end Chen laid parlayed in bed, unable to speak. As he learned that his mother was also seriously ill, things only went further downhill.

Zhou suffered a severe renal failure. Her kidneys' functions were so damaged that only a transplant would help.

The doctors told her the only readily available donor was her son. But she refused the idea outright.

Then brave little Chen heard of his mother’s refusal. Mustering the last of his strength, he implored her: “If you get better, Mama, I will live on through you!”

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.

The eternal gratitude of a mother for her singular son is all that remains in the end. Thank you Chen!

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.
