Heroic brother

This story is so heartbreaking! Ma, then 19-year-old guy decided that he was going to do whatever it took to make sure his three-year-old brother did not lose his life.

Ma is from an impoverished family that has lived all their lives struggling to survive. They live in a poor village in the Hubei province, China.

They do not have the best of life, let alone some of the "luxuries" of a normal life. However, they have always managed to help and support each other.

Things became worse when Ma’s little brother was diagnosed with leukemia and the family could not afford treatment. In addition, there wasn't enough time.

Ma’s brother’s condition inspired him to study to be a doctor. He said:

”I must enter a medical school, only then I have a chance of curing my brother.”

He studied very hard and passed his final exams, getting a total score of 456 in his papers.

Everyone must have been so proud! However, the young man didn't stop there. He started working at a construction site immediately after his exams, trying to save enough money for his brother's treatment.

With all his hard work, Ma only earned 100 yuan (approximately US$ 14,90) daily, but he saved it toward his brother's treatment.

His parents were also working hard to save up for the little boy’s treatment. Ma’s younger brother stayed with his grandmother while the rest of his family went to work to get money.

Luckily, Ma’s story went viral and generous people raised 600,000 yuan for his brother's treatment! This happened just 24 hours after his story was known. Ma was so happy!

”Finally my little brother can be saved!”
