11-year-old Laing Yaoyi of Shenzhen, China had decided his fate this past week as he lay dieing in a hospital. Though his parents were initially shocked, their son’s wishes were noted.
This past Friday Laing lost his battle with cancer that ravaged his brain, but he knew his life was about to save note-less others that he never personally knew. His parents granted his wish, knowing in the end that it was without a doubt the right thing to do.
“There are many people doing great things in the world,” said Yaoyi from his bed. “They are great, and I want to be a great kid too.”
Laing had dreams of becoming a doctor himself and though the doctors could not save him this time, it was a dream of his till his dying days.
After the hospital officially declared Liang dead, doctors quickly escorted him into the operating room to harvest his organs for transplant.
Hospital officials noted that his kidneys and liver were transplanted immediately into other needy patients waiting for the call. Without Liang’s thoughts their life would not have ended on a happy note.
That photo that has brought the attention of social media responses from around the globe has shown many that life can be what you make it…………… but in the end, life is what you can often make for others.
That photo that has now triggered millions of likes and shares shows Liang Yaoyi’s body being wheeled into the operating room, before entering the surgeons formed an honorary guard formation around him, bowing to the gurney carrying his body.
The honor and high respect that the surgeons gave to Yaoyi, only comes to those that have reached a higher level of understanding. No doubt an 11-year-old boy who had a life of hopes and dreams can now know that even in death he has been given the highest respect any young man could ever deserve.
