A Chinese man is now facing serious organ failure after having sold one of his kidneys to buy an iPhone 4 when he was a teenager.
The man, identified by local media as Xiao Wang, was then 17 years old in 2011 when he decided to sell his kidney to buy the iPhone 4, Apple’s latest smartphone model at the time.
A young woman in California not only found a boyfriend on Tinder but also a kidney to save her life.
Two years ago, Cheyenne Han Lee, 22, swiped right on Gavin Geragawa on the popular dating app and immediately hit it off when they started dating.
Gu Guang Zhao, a 12-year-old boy from Henan, China, quit attending his school earlier in October to help his severely ill mother at home and to raise money for her kidney transplant.
After learning that his 40-year-old mother is slowly dying due to kidney failure, Gu wrote to his teacher earlier last month if he could stop going to school to help his mother, according to Chinese media via AsiaOne. Gu, who was a top student in school with many awards under his belt for his academic achievements, began working at a very young age to help raise money for his mother’s operation. As said on the reports, the estimated amount that he had to raise was 500,000 yuan (US$75,578). Unfortunately, the family’s saving has already been tapped out due to his mother’s daily dialysis needs, even incurring a 100,000 yuan (US$15,115) debt. But despite these problems, Gu still worked hard for his mother.
