"Who Will Save My Brother?"

Zsa Zsa Palagyi - 700 Club Producer

ChunYu could hardly wait to meet her baby brother.  She shares, “I picked wild flowers in the mountains and made a wreath he could wear when he got home from the hospital.  And I drew a picture of him looking really handsome.”

But sadly, SunSong was born with a cleft lip and palate.  Her father remembers, “He was in critical condition and looked like a tiny squirrel.”  

Mr. Gao worried he wouldn’t be able to afford surgery for SunSong because as a farmer he only makes nine dollars a week.  And his wife can’t work because she’s almost completely deaf.

“I just hoped for a miracle,” says Mr. Gao.

SunSong’s cleft lip and palate made it hard for him to eat or drink.

“It was so bad that I couldn’t get close to him,” ChunYu recalls.  “I never gave him the gifts I made him. I threw away the wreath and just ripped up the drawing.”

Meanwhile, ChunYu came up with a plan.  She discloses, “I saved everything I could for surgery for SunSong.  I never spent any money on drinks even on hot days. But when my dad said it would cost thousands of dollars, I cried.”

SunSong stayed inside, malnourished, and dehydrated.  The few times he went out, people laughed at him and called him a monster.    “I felt so sorry for my poor little brother,” his sister says.  “I wanted to protect him!”

Then a flood drowned the Gao’s crops, draining their income.  All hope for surgery was lost.  Mr. Gao recounts, “I knelt down and begged the doctors to help SunSong, but they said no.  They didn’t care about us because we’re poor.”

Shortly after this, CBN came to SunSong’s village.  We told the Gao’s we’d be happy to provide cleft lip and palate surgery, free of charge.  

“It seems like our world immediately went from cloudy to sunny,” proclaims Mr. Gao.  “The surgery was so good, SunSong won’t even have scars.   He’s finally starting to grow. And can go to school.  I know he’ll have a good life!”

Now SunSong loves to wear the wreaths his sister makes, and he looks as cute as the pictures she draws. 

“Thank you for helping my brother.  I know I have never seen you, but you have shown me what true love is,” says ChunYu.  She concludes, “Thank you for bringing us all hope.  May you be happy forever!”
