“On this Thanks­giv­ing Day, I want to thank god for grant­ing us our child, who had spent 14 years of good time with us… and to ful­fill his dream, we have do­nated his corneas, hop­ing to bring light to more peo­ple.”

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - WORD MATTERS -

So said the mother of Yuze, a ju­nior high school stu­dent who had a se­vere traf­fic ac­ci­dent in the In­ner Mon­go­lia Au­ton­o­mous Re­gion in Oc­to­ber. On the early morn­ing of Oc­to­ber 16, the news about an emer­gency ve­hi­cle team that was trav­el­ling from In­ner Mon­go­lia to Bei­jing to trans­port a se­verely in­jured teenager went vi­ral on the in­ter­net and in­formed ve­hi­cles trav­el­ling in the same di­rec­tion to clear the roads. The res­cue team ended up ar­riv­ing at the desti­na­tion hospi­tal two hours ear­lier than ex­pected. Un­for­tu­nately, Yuze passed away a few days ago. How­ever, to ful­fill his dream to be a doc­tor and thank all the peo­ple who have helped him along the way, Yuze’s mother de­cided to do­nate his corneas. (Source: The Bei­jing News)
