A distraught mother has been forced forced to make a heart-breaking decision over which of her desperately ill sons should receive her kidney.

Lian Ronghua was pictured in tears as she prepared to go into the operating theatre, after choosing the younger son, Li Haisong, 24.

One of the sons, an aspiring doctor, Li Haiqing, 26, had urged the mother to save the younger

According to reports, the transplant operation cost the family several thousand yuan, and the men’s father Li Xiukai said they might not be able to afford a second operation if a suitable donor is found for Haiqing.

Both sons, from Quanzhou City in the Fujian Province of China, suffered from uremia – a condition that gradually leads to kidney failure – with a kidney transplant offering the only hope of a cure.

Tests revealed that their 51-year-old mother was a suitable kidney donor for both brothers, but could only donate one organ. Their father was ruled out because of his high blood pressure.
