Deng's mother was diagnosed with cancer in February and days after his mother’s third chemotherapy session, she suddenly asked him what he wanted to eat.

“She asked me to go to the market with her. We bought kelp, potatoes and meat. After returning home, she went to the kitchen to cook,” Deng said.

“While she was cooking in the kitchen, I was sitting in the living room. I couldn’t stop crying seeing the sight of her back. She was already very feeble, but she still cooked for me. She was gasping for breath and took a rest for a long time after cooking," Deng said.
