It’s the toughest decision a mother could ever make. Her two sons are desperately ill and they both need her kidney to live. However, she can only choose one son because she needs her other kidney to stay alive.
Faced with the gut wrenching dilemma, mom Lian Ronghua could only cry at the thought of having to choose between her sons. Her husband was unsuitable as a donor due to his high blood pressure.
An inconsolable mom with her eldest son (middle) and younger son (in bed).
The eldest son saw how distraught his mother was and decided to sacrifice his own life for his brother, making the tough choice on behalf of their mom. Even though he’s an aspiring doctor, he wanted his brother to live on.
Mom is understandably emotional over the selfless choice that her eldest son made.
The operation to remove mom’s kidney was a success. Her husband and her eldest son help carry her to her bed.
They watch over her in the hours after her surgery.
The family are hopeful that a kidney can be found for their eldest son so that he can also live. Time is running out but they are waiting for news from the doctor that a donor has been found.
The eldest son made the ultimate sacrifice to give up his chance to live so that his brother can live instead. He also spared his mother from making the hardest decision she’ll probably ever have to make. We are really inspired by his actions and hope that a donor can be found for him soon. We’ll update this story as soon as we hear from the family.
