Many children dream of being superheroes and saving those in need of help. 11-year-old Liang Y. was actually able to make an incredible difference and be a hero for others. He had been fighting brain cancer since he was 9, and surgeries and treatments were not able to eliminate the tumor.
As he neared the end, he revealed to his mother that he wanted her to donate his organs so that he could save the lives of other children. “I have seen many people doing good deeds and I think they are great. I want to be a great child too,” he reportedly told his mother. Liang passed away on June 6, and doctors were able to harvest his liver and kidneys that were successfully transplanted into others who needed them.
The medical staff with Liang at the end were very touched by his bravery and selflessness, and someone snapped a photo of them bowing three times to show their utmost respect for him.
Liang most certainly died a hero and will continue to live on through the organs he was able to donate.
