Kunming Girl in Wedding Gown Looks for a Husband at Train Station, Bringing Along Her Sick Younger Brother
“I will marry whoever is able to save my brother, and can even immediately take the train with him back to his home to marry at once!” On the morning of January 24, Weibo user @黄习超 posted a series of “sister seeks husband to save younger brother” pictures, which caught the attention of many netizens. The pictures show 24 year-old Huang Xiju in a wedding gown together with her younger brother, who suffers from leukemia, at the Kunming train station, where she was hoping to find her brother’s savior among the crowd of travelers returning home to celebrate [Chinese] New Year’s.
Dressed in a white wedding gown, Huang Xiju certainly stood out from the crowd of travelers hurrying to catch trains to go home to celebrate [Chines] New Year’s. She held in her hand a sign, saying: “My little brother has leukemia. We borrowed more than 300,000 yuan for a bone marrow transplant, but complications after the surgery caused systemic sclerosis. We are now in need of 300,000 yuan more to ensure his full recovery. Since we do not have the money to pay the medical expenses, I am looking for a husband [who is willing to help us pay]! If there is someone who is willing to pay my brother’s medical expenses, I am willing to marry him, and am even ready to take the train home with him to register our marriage. I am Huang Xiju from Zhijin county in Guizhou province. I am 24 years old, 150cm tall, and I have a junior college degree! If you are interested you can go to the Hematology Department at Kunming People’s Liberation Army General Hospital to verify my brother’s condition. My brother’s name: Huang Xichao! His Doctor’s name: Li Yu! Serious inquiries only!”
In the last three years, in order to cure Huang Xichao, the family has accumulated a debt of more than 300 000 yuan. A month ago the mother passed away after having suffered a bad fall while looking after her sick son. In a household that has suffered multiple tragedies and misfortunes, the still unmarried older sister Huang Xiju is willing to take on the responsibility of saving her little brother, and to sacrifice her own happiness in order to raise the money needed to cure him. Due to her strong eagerness in finding a good-hearted man who is willing to save her brother, she even put on a wedding gown, saying: “I’m ready to marry whoever is willing to save my little brother, and I am ready to travel home with him to marry at once!”

Comments from QQ:
Her brother looks like a “white-eyed wolf” [ungrateful person] anyway, without the slightest feeling of gratitude [for his sister’s desperate act]. As a younger brother, can you ruin your sister’s life like this!
You should go to the airport; most train travelers are not rich!
Act fast all you single tuhao!! Save a life and get a wife in the bargain!
Hope there is a good-hearted person out there who will save him.
Without any other option, the sister can only sell herself to save her brother. A sister’s love moves heaven and earth. I hope this loving sister gets her reward! I hope the little brother gets help from a good-hearted person soon!
Best to go find the Red Cross, and it might even work, [but] what you’re doing is thoroughly improper!
China’s entrepreneurs and charitable foundations, now is a great opportunity to become famous, seize it!!
When the lives of our loved ones are in danger, no one will be so rational as to put much thought into [what they’re doing]. Marriage when compared to the lives of our loved ones is nothing! Don’t be inconsiderate towards other people’s difficulties, and don’t think you’re so rational in refusing to believe these things; that just shows how sad you are! And if you don’t believe it, don’t attack others because you have nothing better to do. Think of how you behave [and how you are perceived by others]!
[Note: This is in partial response to many skeptical netizens who suspect this is just a publicity stunt.]
If you are willing to help then go ahead and give some help. Those who are not willing to help, be nice! We all have loved ones! We all face difficulties at some point!
Rich men already have wives; those who don’t have wives, how much money could they have…
This story is probably true. I believe this girl’s approach was a last resort; she wants to raise money fast. The well-fed don’t know how the starving suffer. Those people who have more money than they can spend should help these siblings out.
