His 6-year-old grandson was diagnosed with leukemia this year, and he has spent all his money to help cure his illness. The family is now considering selling their house. Sun wants to sell his labor power for the next 7 years in order to save his grandson. He says that he is willing to do any job if someone agrees to pay him 100,000 yuan ($14,995.87) over the next 7 years.

The child often had a fever since 2015 and he was diagnosed with leukemia in May at a Beijing hospital. Doctors at the Tianjin blood hospital told the family that the medical expenses would be around 700,000 yuan.
