VIA| When an 11-year-old Chinese boy was diagnosed with a brain tumor, he wasn’t expected to live much longer. While lying on his death bed, the 11-year-old boy decided to donate his organs to those who needed them.
Because Liang Yaoyi from Shenzhen wanted to be a doctor when he grew up, he figured donating his organs would be the closest he could get to helping others.
At first, the boy’s family was concerned with his compassionate decision. But after thinking about it and listening to his reasons, they decided he was right and fulfilled Yaoyi’s final request.
This boy donated his organs so he could “be alive in another way.”
As doctors wheeled him out of the operating room, they stopped to bow and appreciate the boy’s amazing generosity.
The boy’s organs went to help save other people’s lives within the first eight hours.
Many individuals where inspired by Yaoyi’s decision and went on Sina Weibo, a Chinese blogging website to share their gratitude.
“I am a parent myself, I can strongly sense his mother’s pain at heart. My highest respect to the child and his respectable mother,” posted one person who is identified as @Liuyunxianmo.
“Little angel just came back home! What he did will bring happiness to others. He is our hero and worthy of our highest honor,” wrote @Zaishengzhishangdaxueshenghuanbaolianmeng.
