Brave You XinYu Needs Urgent Medical Care.

You XinYu is 11 years old. This little girl was abandoned at birth, but was fortunate enough to be adopted by a loving Chinese family who already had one son of their own, but had room in their hearts to love a little girl in need too.
The family live a very simple life. Both mama and baba only received education up to 2nd grade of elementary school, are migrant workers and live on 2,000rmb per month. Life is hard but they have love.
Sadly, You Xinyu has leukemia.

When You Xinyu was diagnosed with leukemia her parents sold their tiny apartment in order to pay for her treatment. Sadly it was not enough, plus there were complications.
Due to the specific generic nature of her particular strain of the disease the doctors advised that her best hope was to have a bone marrow transplant from her birth parents.
Unbelievably, with the help of the doctors at the Yanda Hospital,  word spread about this little girl’s predicament and her birth parents were found. It was also discovered that she had an elder sister who was the perfect match for the transplant.
Now though all the money the parents had managed to raise has been used up. They simply do not have the 500,000rmb needed to do the bone marrow transplant plus pay for essential aftercare.
Without it Yu Xinyu will die.
The doctors at the hospital contacted Roundabout with a plea for help.
By the end of September 250,000rmb needs to be deposited in her hospital account in order that the transplant can proceed.



In total we need to raise 500,000rmb to give this sweet child a chance of the life she so deserves.

In the usual gutsy Roundabout spirit we agreed to help. How could we say no?  We seriously don’t know where the money will come from, but we have to try.
When You XinYou heard this news she wrote a beautiful letter, below are some translated excerpts:
” My name is You Xinyu. I’m 11 years old, a 5th grader in an elementary school in Ma An Shan city.
I was diagnosed with leukaemia disease on May 29th this year. While I was treated at Yanda Hospital, I got to know Dr. Xu. The kind Dr. Xu and volunteer Tina Zang introduced me to Becky at Roundabout.
“If I were lucky enough to survive, I will study hard to be a useful person, an independent kid. I will take care of my health in order to recover sooner. And I will become a caring person like the aunts and uncles who are helping me at Roundabout.
“My hand is still connected with IV needle, but I no longer feel the pain, because I have help from all of you. I am having fever today, but dad asks me to hang on. I am doing just that and I have finished this letter. Life is hard for my dad. He sleeps on the floor next to my bed at night. These few words are not enough to express my gratitude. Thank you everyone!

Thank you again. I will persist! Wait for me! “
Truly heartbreaking reading – ” If I were lucky enough to survive
This from the hand of an 11 year old.  Imagine if this was YOUR child uttering these words.

Imagine this was your child and you were powerless to do anything due to poverty>

We are already paying what we can while also paying for several other cases too. As Becky at Roundabout wrote to me
” We’ll need to work very hard to raise enough fund for this little girl’s bone marrow transplant, a 45-year old man’s bone marrow transplant, after care expenses for two other leukemia children at Yanda Hospital (plus two others that we haven’t said “yes” to yet), two premature babies and a little boy with heart problem (each cost projected at 30,000yuan). “
The truth is, everyone at Roundabout already works incredibly hard, juggling many medical case finances at once – and every now and again we just need to reach out to you for that extra bit of help.
