A 21-year-old Guizhou woman with bone cancer recently passed away in her boyfriend’s arms, telling him that she hopes to come back as his daughter.
Xiao Yi was diagnosed with bone cancer six years ago, when she was just 14 years old. She had her left leg amputated during treatment, Guangdong News reports.
She and her 20-year-old boyfriend Xiao Fu had known each other for four years, but started dating two years ago. Unfortunately, last October, doctors told Xiao Yi that her bone cancer was terminal and she decided to stop treatment.
While his girlfriend was battling her illness, Xiao Fu kept watch beside her bed and took patient care of her.
Earlier this month, the two even got the chance to shoot wedding photos together, fulfilling one of Xiao Yi’s dreams.
She passed away 20 days after the photoshoot, at 6:35 a.m. this past Monday. “I hope he can find a good girl and perhaps, I could come back as his daughter,” she said.
