This 41-year-old woman named Ma Phung Tran (living in Yunnan, China) gave birth to a child a long time ago. This austere appearance with only skin and bones is not enough to reflect the difficulties and hardships Mrs. Tran has experienced.
Since birth, Ms. Tran has an intellectual disability. At the age of going to school, she also did not pass the first grade for 4 years, so her family gave up.
At the age of marriage, she married her first husband and be pregnant, giving birth to a 16-year-old daughter this year. However, this child also dropped out of school.
Because she was not as intelligent as a normal person, Ms. Tran often made mistakes and was beaten by her husband.
Unable to endure life with her violent husband, Tran divorced and then married a couple of years later. However, the situation was not much better. She still had to suffer the whips of blows from her husband.
Ms. Tran continued to leave her husband for the second time and married Mr. Tat Thien Tai (45 years old) in March last year.
Although Mr. Tai’s house is very poor, he is a gentle man who will definitely not beat his wife.
After getting married not long, the family became happier when Ms. Tran had “good news”.
After getting married not long, the family became happier when Ms. Tran had “good news”. A new life, though physically strenuous but with a husband and a child who is always there, opens before her eyes.
Until the 30th week, the symptoms of vomiting became more severe, so the family sent her to hospital. The results of the doctor’s examination surprised everyone.
This poor mother was diagnosed with an electrolyte balance disorder. But even more dangerous is that a tumor located just near the fetus has developed into stomach cancer.
On admission, Ms. Tran had only 32kg left. Her “raw-boned” appearance made the doctors working at the hospital for many years, witnessing enough human fate to shed tears of mercy.
Because the cancer has developed to the third stage, the doctor advised Ms. Tran’s family to suspend pregnancy for treatment as soon as possible.
But her husband’s family had to bitterly choose to keep the baby because she wanted to cure Ms. Tran’s condition and was not eligible. Both the family and the doctors did not let Ms. Tran know about the cancer, but only said she had stomach ulcers.
On March 22, Tran’s daughter was born. Because the mother suffers from all kinds of illnesses, the baby weighs only 1.56kg but is fortunate to be completely healthy.
Until now, holding her baby in her arms, Ms. Tran still thinks that she will soon get rid of “stomach ulcers” to get the best care. But the poor woman who doesn’t know her life is only counted in months.
