The heart grows outside his body

A 4 year old Chinese boy, Zhang Weiyuan, has not had an easy life.

He has an odd and rare medical condition were his heart is growing on the outside of his stomach. His tiny heart is only covered with one layer of skin under which it can easily be seen beating.

Doctors are not sure if they can perform surgery to put his heart back in place but they will try and do their best.

His parents are both garbage collectors and they feel quilty for not taking their son to see a doctor earlier, because they couldn’t afford the fees.

“He never cries even though he suffers all the time, which makes us feel even more guilty.”

Lets hope that this brave young boy will catch a break and have a normal life.
