Not Worth Saving?

Doctors told Ba Xiao’s parents that their daughter wasn’t worth saving but this Chinese farmer and his wife refused to give up. Learn how this thirteen-year-girl defied the odds. Read Transcript


Reporter: BASHO YEN IS

ONLY 13 YEARS OLD, BUT SHE

SPENT MORE TIME AT THE

HOSPITAL THAN MANY PEOPLE

WILL IN THEIR ENTIRE

LIFETIME.

SHE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH A

HEART DISEASE SINCE SHE WAS

THREE AND HAS HAD TO FIGHT

FOR LIFE EVER SENSE.

CHO LYNNE HAD A HARD TIME

BREATHING.

WE TRIED TO SEND HER TO

SCHOOL, BUT SHE WAS TOO WEAK

AND THEY ALWAYS SENT HER

HOME.

EVERY TIME MY FRIENDS

ASKED ME TO PLAY WITH THEM,

I COULDN'T.

I COULDN'T EVEN WALK.

THE MOST I COULD DO WAS CUT

OUT PAPER FIGURES ON MY

BED.

Terry: CHOEN

DESPERATELY NEEDED HEART

SURGERY.

BUT SINCE HE WAS A POOR

FARMER, THERE WAS NO WAY HE

COULD PAY FOR IT.

AND THE DOCTORS OFFERED NO

HOPE.

THE DOCTORS SAY CHO

LYNNE'S HEART PROBLEM WAS SO

BAD, WE SHOULD FORGET ABOUT

TRYING TO SAVE HER.

BUT CHO LYNNE IS OUR ONLY

DAUGHTER.

HOW COULD WE SIT BY AND

WATCH HER DIE.

THE THOUGHT OF LOSING MY

DAUGHTER BROKE MY HEART AND

BROUGHT ME TO TEARS.

Reporter: THEY REFUSED

TO GIVE UP GETTING HOPE FOR

CHO LYNNE.

CHO LYNNE KNEW SHE MIGHT

DIE, AND WHEN SHE ASKED ME

WHY I WAS NOT GETTING HER

SUR, I -- HER SURGERY, IT

WAS VERY HARD TO EXPLAIN WE

DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH MONEY.

SO I SAID, PLEASE, CHO

LYNNE, JUST WAIT.

MAYBE SOME DAY.

Reporter: THEN THEY

HEARD THAT CBN WAS COMING TO

TOWN TO HELP CHILDREN IN

NEED.

AND CHO LYNNE WAS AT THE TOP

OF THE LINE.

THE DOCTOR REPAIRED THE

WHOLE IN HER HEART AND

REPOSITIONED THE ARTERY.

SOON CHO LYNNE WAS BACK IN

SCHOOL PLAYING WITH FRIENDS

AND HEALTHIER THAN SHE HAS

BEEN IN HER ENTIRE LIFE.

WE DON'T HAVE TO WORRY

ABOUT CHO LYNNE DYING

ANYMORE, AND THAT IS SUCH A

RELIEF.

MY DAUGHTER IS SO

DIFFERENT NOW.

SHE HAS ENERGY AND HOPE.

SHE WAS SLIPPING OUT OF OUR

HANDS YOU CAME TO HER RESCUE

AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME.

WE WILL NEVER FORGET THE

CARE YOU HAD FOR CHO LYNNE

AND MY FAMILY.

I CUT THIS OUT BECAUSE I

WANT TO THANK YOU FOR SAVING

MY LIFE.

THANK YOU, CBN.
