This is a beautiful story of honor and love.  The picture of these surgeons and medical staff bowing before this young boy Liang, who died of a brain tumor, moved me deeply and reminded me of my own son who donated his organs at nine years.  May we always remember to bow our heads and honor those who have the courage to keep giving, even after death.

Liang was diagnosed with a brain tumor at the age of nine, just after he moved to Shenzhen to join his brother and sister, and to attend primary school.

Before passing away on June 6, Liang told his mother, Li Qun, that he wanted to donate his organs.

“There are many people doing great things in the world,” he said.

CCTV News reported that Liang also said it was also a chance for him to be “alive in another way.”

Liang’s mother honored his wishes and doctors were able to save his kidney and liver for donation.  The medical staff bow before him as a sign of honor for his gifts.

  5. Wow! Thanks for sharing this Karen. As a mum it has been tragic for you to loose your son so young, but a great maturity and strength has risen from within you to be a wonderful blessing to others, by reaching for the treasure in the trial, and enriching us all through your blog.
