7 year- old boy begged his mother to let him die

Chen XiaoTien was diagnosed with a brain tumour, just months before his own mother discovered she had kidney disease. They would both need to struggle just to live a shadow of the life everyone else has. So Chen made a brave decision as he got worse. He told his mother just to let him die...... so she may live.
For years they both battled their conditions.

 Eventually Chen was blinded and basically
paralysed as a result of his tumour
Doctors knew he would die soon. They also knew he would be a match for his mother, who needed a kidney. Zhou Lou however, refused to take it.
Chen overheard her refusal and went to her,
urging his mother to take the kidney.
He wanted to save her life.
Zhou finally agreed, knowing a piece of her son would live in
her. He passed away on 2nd April and his kidney
was given to her mother.
The team of doctors observed a moment of silence in respect to brave boy Chen for his selfless sacrifice before proceeding to harvest his organs. There wasn't a dry eye in the operating theatre as they bade goodbye to heroic Chen XiaoTien, who was about to save the life of his mother, and two other recipients of his organs.
Before that doctors were unsure Zhou
could ever live a normal life.
Now thanks to her son, she will.
Story obtained from Daily Mail.
Chen's sacrifice and bravery are incredible.
Please share this story.

Young Chinese train passengers give up seats to old lady in Wuhan

69 year-old granny Madam Du lived in HonShan District, Wuhan City, Hubei  Province, China. Each time she entered town by riding the city's busy and usually packed public transport of bus, commuter train, or MRT, she rarely could find an empty seat. But lo, no worry. Younger set of Wuhan citizens were well perceived as civil minded, polite and cultured people who readily gave up their seats for Madam Du. She felt very obliged and appreciated the kind gesture the passengers offered her. She fully understood that sometimes standing passengers would have to endure ordeal for half an hour for the ride to the city centre.  Madam Du was indebted to their kind deed that she felt she should do something to show her gratitude.

Half a year ago she brewed a fanciful thought that should there be anyone who gave up seat for her, she would used her mobile hand phone to take a picture of the kind doer, with his/her permission of course. So six months later she had taken 59 pictures of 59 faces and managed to retain 59 unforgettable memories of 59 times when seats were given up to her. She went further by publishing the pictures she took in the net through her social media of Weibo.
So today have you given up your seat to any deserving person?
