“I asked her, ‘Now you are the only one to save dad, do you want to save him?’ and she said, firmly, ‘Yes, I am not afraid.’”
Zhenzhen, who happened to be a picky eater, gained 4.5 kilograms (10 pounds) in just a little over a month. She now weighs 33.5 kilograms (74 pounds).
“Sometimes she told me that she didn’t want to eat any more, but I asked her, ‘Do you want to save dad?’ then she would try to eat some more,” her mother said.
After Zhenzhen’s efforts, doctors greenlighted the transplant for next week. Zhenzhen’s hard work paid off!
