Four-year-old Cai Yujie was diagnosed heart disease when he had a health check in the school early this year. Local physician highly suggested his parents to take him to a better hospital for further treatment. He was hospitalized in Oct and diagnosed as Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) in the First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University. The first operation has been operated immediately due to the severe condition. The second operation might be needed depending on the recovery.
Cai Yujie’s parents are from Jiangxi Provence. Cai Yujie was born when his mother was 42. He has one 7-year-old sister. His father is a rice farmer as the sole source with low income supporting the whole family. His mother was a housewife taking care of these two young children. Their grandparents all passed away. His parents’ siblings are old and sick. Only one nephew is able to help them, borrowing them some money to pay for the surgery. They’re also applying for low-income family subsidy from the government. The huge financial burden from the heart operation was not able to be solved by themselves.
