Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at Stanford Hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who was suffering from a rare and serious disease. Her only chance of recovery appeared to be a blood transfusion from her 5-year old brother, who had miraculously survived the same disease and had developed the antibodies needed to combat the illness.

The doctor explained the situation to her little brother, and asked the boy if he would be willing to give his blood to his sister. I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a deep breath and saying, "Yes, I'll do it if it will save Liz."

As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing the color returning to her cheeks. Then his face grew pale and his smile faded. He looked up at the doctor and asked with a trembling voice, "Will I start to die right away?"

Being young, the boy had misunderstood the doctor; he thought he was going to have to give his sister all of his blood.


P-S- not my site, since it's taken from that site so I have included the web link.

      I have to agree

      Sometimes, kids teach us valuable lessons as well with their innocence, sweetness and honesty.

        The brother will do anything and everything for her sister. He are willing to sacrifice all even his own life just for the love for her sister.

      A very touching story. Got me thinking really deep, that's why Jesus says you have to have the heart of a child to get to heaven.
