Mother Abandons Her Cancer-Stricken Toddler In Hospital Because He's Too Much Trouble

A two-year-old boy frequently cries for his mother, and for good reason.

Unfortunately, his mother is probably not coming. She stopped coming 10 months ago because she felt her son's medical issues were too much of a bother. His grandparents are heartbroken for him.

Hu Haoyang, affectionately known as Yangyang, was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma, a rare form of liver cancer, over a year ago. Photos of the little one screaming for his mother after a painful procedure are heart-wrenching, because his mother isn't coming.

Some 10 months ago, the family took up a collection of 200,000 yuan, approximately $30,000 U.S. dollars. The money was supposed to go to the boy's medical treatment, but Yangyang's mother took the money and ran.

The family forced her to return the money, and she did reluctantly bring it back. She stayed with her son for about a week, but then took off and has not been back since.

The boy's father, Hu Xiaofei, first noticed something was wrong in May of 2016, when Hu kept getting fevers. When he was brought to the hospital he was diagnosed with cancer and quickly underwent chemotherapy treatments. Two-thirds of Yangyang's liver has been removed, and doctors thought they had successfully cut out the cancerous tumors.

Hepatoblastoma is an aggressive form of cancer that spreads very quickly. it usually strikes children before their third birthday. Fewer than a million cases are known. If hepatoblastoma is caught early and treated, surgery is usually the best option for removing cancerous cells. Once it metastasizes, though, the outlook can be grim

Unfortunately, the toddler suffered a relapse. The family is trying to raise the money for a liver transplant. In the meantime, Yangyang has been transferred to a hospital in Beijing for treatment.

Medical bills have skyrocketed to $150,000. Xiaofei works tirelessly in an effort to try and raise the money. Since he's a migrant worker, he's unable to raise nearly enough. The family borrowed nearly $100,000 from family members and friends in an attempt to keep up with payments so that Yangyang can continue to get the treatments he needs. They’ve even borrowed money from loan sharks to help cover some of their debts, but it has just gotten them deeper in the hole.

The family has started a donation campaign on Chinese social media outlets and is hoping to raise the money to cover Yangyang's costs. They need approximately $100,000 to cover current expenses and keep Yangyang in treatments.

Xiaofei says that as troubling as the financial burden is, the real heartbreak is that he can't bear to tell his son that his mother is not coming for him. Yangyang still asks for her repeatedly, but his father keeps telling him she's out working.

Xiaofei's parents are helping him take care of the little boy, who has so far undergone nine surgeries and over 20 rounds of chemotherapy. The doting father and grandparents are remaining optimistic about the little boy's future.
