Yang Li, 24, from Hangzhou City, China, was 12 weeks into her pregnancy, when she decided to give up her child so that she could provide a bone marrow transplant for her brother, Yang Jun, 29, DailyMail reports.
Sadly for the 24-year-old, after discussing the potential donation with experts, she was warned that donating marrow would have a significant negative effect on her child. She was recommended to choose either her baby or her brother.
With the support of her husband and her in-laws, Ms Li made the impossible decision to save Yang Jun. She recently underwent abortion surgery in Hangzhou and is recovering.
