Heart wrenching moment woman is forced to choose between her two sons who both needed a kidney transplant

A distraught mother has been forced forced to make a heart-breaking decision over which of her desperately ill sons should receive her kidney.

Lian Ronghua was pictured in tears as she prepared to go into the operating theatre, after choosing the younger son, Li Haisong, 24.
Aspiring doctor Li Haiqing, 26, sacrificed his own health by urging his mother to save his sibling according to a report in The People’s Daily Online, saying: ‘We will save little brother first.’

The transplant operation cost the family several thousand yuan, and the men’s father Li Xiukai said they might not be able to afford a second operation if a suitable donor is found for Haiqing.
Both men, from Quanzhou City in the Fujian Province of China, suffered from uremia – a condition that gradually leads to kidney failure – with a kidney transplant offering the only hope of a cure.
The entire family moved to Xiamen last year so that Haiqing could receive dialysis treatment on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, while Haisong underwent the same procedure on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
