7 yr old girl with leukemia asks to halt treatment because family cannot afford it

Postby flyawayhome » Mon, 22 Jan 2018 6:08 pm

A letter written by a seven-year-old Chinese girl with leukaemia to her father has touched the hearts of many readers who have donated 600,000 yuan (US$93,700) to help with her treatment.

The letter was penned by Zhang Jiaye who comes from a village near Jiamusi in Heilongjiang province in northeast China, the news website K618.cn reported.

No details were given of when or how the letter was made public, but donations started pouring in last September.

“Dad, I saw you cry today. I’m so sad. I know you’ve spent a lot of money to treat me. You’ve run out of money. Mum also left. This is all because of me. If I am gone, Mum will come back and you will be happy as before. I don’t want be treated any more. Let’s go home, shall we?” part of the letter said.

Jiaye was diagnosed with leukaemia in May 2016 and is now receiving treatment in hospital, the report said.
