29 years of age should be the golden age in a person’s life, but that isn’t the case for Tao Lou, a beautiful PHD graduate from Peking University.
The girl suffered from a terminal disease known as Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig. A disease that damages the motor neurons in the brain and spinal cord which disallows the muscles to gain nourishment and becomes weaker and smaller, eventually leads to collapsing of the human body.
Tao Lou was diagnosed with the disease in 2015 and have been fighting it ever since. She broke up with her longtime boyfriend a month after she found out about her illness, to prevent him from any mental or emotional pain.
Her dying requests was to donate her organs to anyone in need, refused to have a funeral of any kind, and have her ashes dumped into the Yangtze river, leaving no mark nor trace of her existence.
