Zhejiang woman gives away 'leftover' donations after recovering from leukemia

(People's Daily Online)    16:04, December 26, 2016

A woman in Zhejiang province offered a large donation to the Haining Charity Federation in the wake of her successful battle against leukemia, Qianjiang Evening News reported recently.

Last October, Yang Zhenren was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia. Her doctor recommended a bone marrow transplant, which Yang and her family could not afford. However, Yang's friends quickly launched an online donation drive, raising 186,919 RMB($26,897) for her treatment. Donors also offered Yang enormous encouragement and strength to fight the disease.

Yang was prudent about the donations, relying on them only as a last resort. After her recovery, she tried to give back the leftover funds, but the kind donors refused. So Yang gave the funds to Haining Charity Federation instead.

“Though we have confronted great expenses since I became ill, this life-saving money can help more people in need. They need as much help as I once did,” Yang said.

At present, she is trying to pay off her remaining debt through a WeChat business.
