FUZHOU - Cash donations have begun to flood in for a seriously ill man whose love story is the subject of a short film that has become an Internet sensation.

Ke Peizong, 26, was diagnosed with acute lymphatic leukemia in September and is awaiting a bone marrow transplant at a hospital in Fujian province.

However, his family and friends say they have been shocked by the public response to a documentary about his relationship with his fiancee, 27-year-old Ding Genxiu.

"More and more people - far beyond expectations - have got to know our story through this film and have expressed their desire to help," said Ding, who estimated that the couple have received almost 160,000 yuan ($25,000) in donations in just a week.

"People have donated large and small amounts online to help us at this awful time," she said. "Now I know we are not alone in going through this."

Peizong and Genxiu, the four-minute film, has no dialogue. It simply follows the couple's everyday life.

Ding wakes up daily at 6 am to shop at a vegetable market to make breakfast for Ke, which she delivers to him on the 26th floor of the hospital in Fuzhou, capital of Fujian province.
