Chinese husband ready to sacrifice cancer treatment so wife and daughter can receive care

A Chinese husband was forced to pass up treatment for cancer so that his wife and daughter could both receive the medical care they needed.

Ke Meinan, 42, was diagnosed with stomach cancer in 2015 and his 46-year-old wife Wang Huaying diagnosed with breast cancer a month later.

But when their 16-year-old daughter was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease lupus, the family, from the eastern province of Jiangxi, realised that they could not afford to pay for all three of them to be treated.
