“I wish that a kind-hearted person could buy me, so my mother can undergo the operation. After the transaction, I am willing to work at the will of the buyer in return. I will do whatever the buyer asked me to do. I never go back on my word. Everything I said is true. I will sell myself to the highest bidder.”
The Daily Mail said Cao’s story was verified by Huang Qiliang, founder of Chinese charity Gong Yi Pai Ke, which connects donors to people in need of educational and medical assistance.
Huang claimed that a “generous boss” saw Cao’s post and agreed to cover her mother’s treatment:
“It has been settled. She doesn’t have to sell anything now.”
Whatever plans this “generous boss” has Cao is yet unknown.
