Eleven-year-old boy intentionally gained weight to save his father’s life: he’s a real saviour

The Lu family lives in China, in the Xinjiang province. The parents had two sons and worked hard to earn their daily bread.

But, unfortunately, the father of the family, Lu Yanheng, suffered from leukemia and a bone marrow donor was needed, and the family did not have that much money to be able to pay for a donor.

So doctors said if his 11-year-old son reached 100 pounds, he could save his father.

Zikuan only weighed 32 kilos and to gain weight and gain 15 kilos, he had to eat 5 large meals a day.

The courageous young boy decided to do what he could to become a donor, because donating his blood marrow was very important to save his father.

So, to gain weight, he started eating noodles, soy-braised pork and other high-calorie foods every day.

On top of all this, his siblings usually gave him some of their food.

Although the diet was not unpleasant, the boy sometimes had stomach aches from overeating.

After some time of constant eating, Zikuan finally reached the proper weight, just 48 kilos, which was enough to donate his bone marrow.

On the day of the operation, the family went to Peking University Hospital. It was Mr. Lu’s birthday.

Fortunately, the surgery was successful and Zikuan’s father was discharged from the hospital and was getting better and better.

Ziukan, in turn, was doing well and after a short time he was also released from the hospital. What the 11-year-old got, was the best birthday present ever for his dad.

He has now adopted a different diet to lose weight.

The boundless love of a young child for his father was able to achieve a miracle.
