Hopefully someone will see this story and either pay for the necessary surgery or a surgeon will volunteer their services.

The picture of her as a young mother shows her to have been a cute, vibrant young lady. But sitting next to what I suppose is her cousin, that probably was going to be short-lived anyway.

Terrible to have those tumors, though.

The Chinese government would be glad to ease her misery with a bullet to the base of the skull. But, seeing as how her family would get billed for the cost of the bullet, which she can't afford, she'll just have to suffer.

Trouble is it's not that simple. I doubt one surgery, or even a few surgeries, will take care of things. If she lived somewhere where lifelong healthcare, including surgical care, was socialised, she may have a chance. This looks pretty advanced, and will need a whole lot of treatment. If only it had been treated sooner, she would likely have a better prognosis. Medical care should be socialised. Everyone should help pay for everyone else, because all of this crap can happen to anyone, at any time, and screw all you guys who would say if she can't pay then too bad. Just you wait until you get sick.

I'm confused. She was married with 2 kids, and then in 2009 she met a man and they married.......do I assume that the first Husband left her? Did I miss that in the article? 'Cause maybe she could make money on a reality show about having multiple husbands...it worked for the dude with the wives.
