Chen Xiaotian was only 7 when he was diagnosed with the brain tumor that would kill him. If that wasn’t enough bad news for his family, his mother Zhou Lu was diagnosed with kidney disease. They both would need to struggle just to live a shadow of the life everyone else has.
So, Chen made a brave decision as he got worse. He asked his mother just to let him die… so that she may live.
Chen Xiaotian was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor just months before his own mother discovered she had kidney disease.
For years they both battled their conditions. Eventually, Chen was blinded and basically paralyzed as a result of his tumor.
Doctors knew he would die soon. They also knew he would be a match for his mother, who needed a kidney. Zhou Lou, however, refused to take it.
