For 7 past years, she had to go to the hospital's artificial kidney ward for undergoing dialysis three times a week.

Doctors' efforts were rewarded when she gave birth to a 1.5 kilogram baby boy on September 6, 2015. After one month, the baby develops well and weighs 2.1 kilogram now.

The second patient is 28 year old Chu Tien Long from the northern province of Vinh Phuc's Vinh Tuong District. When he was taken to the hospital, doctors diagnosed that he has a tumor in his spinal column and the tumor had blocked his nervous system, belly and vein system.

Dr. Hoang Gia Du, head of the trauma orthopedic and spine ward, said that through consultation, physicians verified the tumor come from vertebra trunk impedes nerves, abdominal holes and pelvis vena cava.

Worse, the position of the tumor is in the waist where the aorta divides; consequently, without an operation, the patient will die yet the operation will be very complicated as the position of the tumor is in dangerous place; accordingly, a slight mistake will be worth his death in the operation room.
