Due to their financial status, he will not be able to buy such phone that is why he came with the decision of selling his one kidney. After all, humans have two kidneys and research have proved that we can function even though we only got one kidney that is why Xiao felt sure that his decision is right.
He immediately looks for people who can perform the operation and buy his one kidney. He left the house without the permission of his parents and go to Chenzhou hospital. To his surprise, it was not a legit hospital with the unsanitary operating environment. The operation went successful and Xiao receives 22,000 yuan ($3,200) in exchange for his kidney.
Xiao got sick because of infection and he was not able to buy his dream phone due to hospitals bills that need to be paid. His remaining kidney is not functioning anymore and he is one of the patients in line for the kidney transplant. His family is left financially and emotionally broke because of the decision that went wrong.
Poor boy that he had to go through the hard way of learning the lesson in life that you have to put your health a priority and not the things of this world.
