Mao Amao takes good care of her disabled grandson.
 
Tackling the housework all by herself and taking care of her grandson with cerebral hemiplegia, after he was severely injured in a car accident two years ago, is just a normal day for an 85-year-old grandma in Ningbo. Identified as Mao Amao, the old woman has been looking after her disabled grandson for 6 years since her husband died, an ongoing effort that has moved many of their neighbors, according to reports.

The elderly woman has devoted her life to raising her grandson. But taking care of a man with cerebral hemiplegia would be a huge challenge for any family. The 24-year-old young man’s disability requires that he receives round-the-clock care. He is unable to feed himself or walk. Despite the hardships of caring for her grandson, Mao has tried her best to provide whatever she can for him.

Although there is no support for the old woman, Mao said she would never abandon him.

"I'd rather die than do that," she said.
