Wang Yueyue, 10, from Haozhou city of Anhui province was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia on Sep. 2012. Doctors said that the bone marrow transplant was the only way to save her life. In the family, only Yueyue's little brother, Wang Zishuo's bone marrow was compatible. But he is just 4-year-old and weighed 22 kilos. He is too thin to donate the bone marrow. The family has to wait for Zishuo to grow stronger. When Zishuo heard that gaining the weight could save his daughter, the little boy changed his bad habit of being fussy about the food and ate as much as he could. "I want to gain weight faster to save my sister."

The story about Wang Zishuo and his sister has touched people. A lot of them offer their help and the government provides Yueyue with medical assistance. It is the convenient help for this family without high-income.
