Liang was diagnosed with the tumor at the age of 9, just after he moved to Shenzhen to join his brother and sister, and to attend primary school, Shanghai Daily reports. One day, Liang felt dizzy and the next day had trouble walking, so his sister took him to a hospital where he learned he had a brain tumor.
Before passing away on June 6, Liang told his mother, Li Qun, that he wanted to donate his organs.
“There are many people doing great things in the world,” he said according to China Daily. “They are great, and I want to be a great kid too.”
