There are no words to describe how deeply affecting this true story is. Zhou Lu and her son Chen Xiaotian were touched by tragedy when Chen was 5-years-old. The boy was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Although doctors caught the disease early, doctors told the family he would not live long. Only months later, doctors discovered Zhou had kidney disease.
For two years the mother and son battled their diseases together. Eventually, Chen’s health deteriorated and the boy became blind and bedridden. His mother was doing better but doctors told her she would need a kidney transplant to live. They told her that her son Chen would be a perfect match, but she immediately refused.
