Haihai, a 2-year-old boy from northern China has now become an Internet star after videos of him eating deftly with chopsticks easily garnered tens of thousands of views on Kuaishou, a Chinese platform similar to Instagram.
In the video, the chopstick “pro” is seen savouring on dumplings, noodles, and pancakes.
But a recent report states that Haihai is battling cancer. Haihai was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia in January 2018. But nothing seems to defeat Haihai, including his spirit in battling cancer.
In order to seek treatment for Haihai, his family travelled to Beijing and have spent approximately 700,000 yuan (approximately RM425,000) so far to help him get better. To make matters worse, the baby’s grandmother is also ill as she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Due to the family’s financial constraints, his grandmother decided to sacrifice her own medical treatment to save Haihai. Our hearts can’t take this!
The 2-year-old’s parents also borrowed money from friends and relatives; however, this caused a strain in relations, which was why they turned to social media for help. Haihai’s family made an account on the Chinese social media platform, Kuaishou, showing off his impressive chopsticks skills.
The team at Viral Planet Wish Haihai a speedy recovery.
