Little Red Scarf is in Lanzhou, Gansu province and provides financial support and encouragement to children suffering from congenital heart disease. In addition, they provide families with post-operative care and help the children sustain a healthy lifestyle.
Before Xiao Qin went into the operating room, she said to her family, “Do not worry about me. Remember to buy some moon cakes for Mid-Autumn Festival!”
When she came out of surgery, her family was there waiting for her with moon cakes. She had some trouble turning around in bed, an made a joke about losing weight. She looked at everyone's worried faces and told them it was nice being spoiled. That's just the type of girl Xiao Qin was. She's always putting on a brave face for those around her with her sense of humor.
On the 5th day after the surgery, she could get down to the ground and walk a little bit. She was getting better day by day. 12 days after the surgery, Xiao Qin is just as strong as before. It’s a wonderful feeling, she said. Now Xiao Qin is in post-operation examination period. We will have good news from her soon!
