Husband cares for paralyzed wife for 5 years

Xu Jiangming, 51, has spent the last five years taking care of his paralyzed wife in a village in Zhuji, Zhejiang province. When he goes to work, Xu brings his wife with him, carefully helping her into and out of the vehicle.

One afternoon five years ago, Xu’s wife announced that she had a headache. Soon after, she began to vomit and fell to the ground. Xu’s wife was diagnosed with a cerebral hemorrhage. After two months of treatment, the doctor told Xu that his wife would never fully recover.

From then on, Xu took over as his wife's caretaker, teaching himself how to do the domestic chores that his wife had always taken care of.

The couple originally planned to renovate their house in preparation for their son’s marriage. However, the money for the renovation had to be spent on medical bills. Xu has also taken on a debt of 100,000 RMB.
