Doctors Honor 11-Year-Old’s Selfless Act in Viral Photo

We’ve all heard the phrase, “out of the mouths of babes” – but this young boy takes that to the absolute ultimate level. Liang Yaoyi was diagnosed with a brain tumor when he was 9 years old. Two years later, the young man from Shenzhen, China, passed away — but not before telling his mother, Li Qun, something important. “There are many people doing great things in the world,” he said, according to China Daily. “They are great, and I want to be a great kid too.” He went on to say that he’d like to be an organ donor — to help others and to be “alive in another way,” CCTV News reported. With his family’s permission, doctors at Zhongshan Hospital fulfilled the 11-year-old’s wish after his death on June 6. A powerful photograph of the doctors bowing to Liang then hit the Internet. Liang’s kidney and liver were transplanted to new patients shortly after.
