The Chinese public is touched by two parents’ devotion to their son after the 1-year-old was seriously injured by a burst hot water pipe and in need of skin tissue from human scalps.
The parents of a one-year-old boy badly burned in an accident have shaved their heads and donated scalp tissue for skin grafts their son urgently needs.
The story of the boy, named Kangkang, and the plight of his family from Cangzhou, northern China’s Hebei province, has been picked up by mainland media and moved millions of people in China.
On Tuesday, the mother volunteered to donate her scalp tissue for her injured son and shaved off her long hair.
“I’m going to donate my scalp to Kangkang tomorrow, and soon our family will be bald,” said the mother, who was not named.
“I’ll also see him for the first time since he was taken to the hospital — I will give him anything.
