A Father Tries To Save His Little Girl

Three-year-old Ya Nan needed heart surgery now, but it would take years for her father to save enough money. Ya Nan's heart wouldn't last that long. Would this impossible situation end well? Read Transcript


WHEN SHE WAS THREE YEARS

OLD, DOCTORS TOLD HER

PARENTS SHE WOULDN'T LIVE

PAST HER EIGHTH BIRTHDAY

UNLESS HE HAD SURGERY.

SHE WAS BORN WITH A LOCAL IN

HER HEART.

SHE WAS VERY SKINNY, AND

ALWAYS COLD.

WHENEVER SHE TRIED TO RUN

AND JUMP, HE FACE WOULD TURN

GREY AND SHE WOULD CRAY FROM

THE PAIN -- CRY FROM THE

PAIN.

I COULD HARDLY STAND TO

WATCH.

IF I COULD HAVE GIVEN HER MY

HEART, I WOULD HAVE.

Terry: SO MR. CHU SET

OUT TO RAISE THE MONEY HIS

DAUGHTER NEEDED FOR

SURGERY.

HE WORKED VERY HARD AT HIS

CONSTRUCTION JOB AND WAS

GONE FROM 6 A.M. TO 6 P.M.

OR EVEN LATER, SEVEN DAYS A

WEEK.

I DID THE MATH AND I

FIGURED OUT IT WOULD TAKE 10

YEARS OF MY INCOME TO PAY

FOR HEART SURGERY FOR YENAN,

BUT I DIDN'T KNOW IF SHE

COULD WAIT THAT LONG.

Reporter: THE CHUS HAD

TRIED TO GET HELP FROM THEIR

LOCAL GOVERNMENT, BUT AFTER

THOSE ATTEMPTS FAILED, THEY

TURNED TO CBN.

I CONTACTED CBN, AND

RIGHT AWAY THEY TOLD US THEY

WOULD HELP WITH HER

SURGERY.

AT THAT MOMENT, I KNEW THAT

MY DAUGHTER WOULD LIVE.

I WAS SO HAPPY.

EVEN MY NEIGHBORS NOTICED.

THEY ASKED ME WHY I WAS

SMILING SO MUCH.

I TOLD THEM IT WAS BECAUSE

OF THE GOOD-HEARTED PEOPLE

AT CBN.

Terry: IT WASN'T LONG

BEFORE WE ARRANGED THE

SURGERY THAT YENAN NEEDED.

A SURGEON REPAIRED THE HOLE

IN HER HEART, AND SOON YENAN

WAS COMPLETELY WELL.

BETTER THAN SHE HAD BEEN HER

ENTIRE LIFE.

THIS HEART SURGERY HAS

TOTALLY CHANGED YENAN.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR SAVING

MY DAUGHTER'S LIFE.

I DON'T FEEL ANY PAIN IN

MY HEART.

AND I CAN PLAY WITH MY FRIENDS.
