捐血147次只为救妻 5年被开除30次
Man makes over 147 blood donations for anemic wife

【新闻速递】2003年,徐文武的妻子因为贫血摔倒,医生称今后输血将会成为常态。对于当时本不富裕的徐文武来说,无疑是雪上加霜。于是他开始拼命挣钱,打算要花钱为妻子买血续命

后来,徐文武知道了献血者家人能免费用血的政策,他一想,自己本身就在献血,现在更要继续献血。“以前献血是积德,现在献血是为媳妇续命……”为了能让妻子免费用血,徐文武在十几年的时间里献血147次。

妻子患上了肌无力后,头几年还能动弹,但是这五六年,她连生活都无法自理了,上个厕所还得让徐文武抱着去。自从妻子不能自理后,徐文武出门后只要接到妻子电话,就得马上往家跑。正因为这样,虽然自己有着电工手艺,但工作很难稳定,粗略统计,5年时间里,徐文武已经被30多个单位辞退。

Xu Wenwu, a resident in Changchun city of Jilin province, has been donating blood for more than a decade. The computer data at Changchun blood station, established in 2001, recorded 147 donations made by him, but the actual number could be more.

Xu did this mostly for his wife Wang Xiaoying, who suffers from anemia and amyasthenia, as the blood donation policy allows spouse of the donator to use blood for free if he donates blood for certain times.

"I used to give blood as a good deed, now I do it so that my wife could live longer", said Xu.

Xu and Wang got married in 1995. They gave birth to a twins and a daughter in the following three years of their marriage, but they all passed away one after another. In 1998, Xu made his first blood donation.

In 2003, Wang fell down because of anemia. Xu was told Wang would have to get blood transfusion frequently in the future. He worked hard to make money so that he could afford the fees for his wife’s medical care.

Later, when he learned the policy for blood donation, he went regularly to give off blood.

His wife Wang Xiaoying was later diagnosed with amyasthenia and gradually lost her ability to look after herself.

“If it weren’t for me, Wenwu wouldn’t end up like this,” Wang said, ”I even can’t go to the toilet by myself.”

Xu works as an electrician. He would go home immediately if getting a phone call from his wife, even when he’s working outside. Thus, Xu was dismissed by over 30 employers in the past five years.(英文文本 via SinaEnglish)
