Recently, a standard one girl with a rare bone disease passed all her savings coins to her father because she wanted to give up treatment in order to save her baby sister who was diagnosed with the same disease, This heart wrenching story took place in Henan, china. According to china Press, the 7-year-old girl named Wang Yue was diagnosed with osteopetrosis, which is a life-threatening disease where bones get overly dense throughout the body.
The symptoms include fractures, low blood cell production and loss of cranial nerve function, which ultimately lead to blindless, deafness and facial nerve paralysis. Wang Yue's condition is getting worse by the day and she might die anytime. However, she refused to go thorough modern medical treatment and only drinks seven bowls of tradition Chinese medecine every day, because she wants to save all the money for her 1-year-old sister.
The good news is that her parents have successfully found compatible bone marrow and the donor is going through a medical check up. They also planned for both their children to undergo the bone marrow transplant. Sadly, the surgical fee for one chil is 500,000 yuan (P 3,738,650) and that's before taking into account the post-surgery treatment fee. The father had already emptied his bank account for ealier treatments.
After done borrowing money from friends and families, the father only managed to amass under 200,000 yuan (P1,495,460). Realizing that only one of them will have the chance to make it to the operating theatre, Wang Yue told her father,
"Since we cant manage to barrow so much money, i will give up on the treatment then. I have some savings here, combine it with the money you barrowed to save my sister. She bravely said.
"Im big already, it doesn't matter if I don't undergo the treatment. Here's some money that I've save up, please take it," she added while handing over her coints to her father.
Her father extented his shaky hands to receive the coins while tears welled up in his eyes. This heartbreaking news received nationwide attention and a fund-raising effort has been set up.
