Erica + LongLong 4 Life

You’re in for a treat…

Erica Xu is on the blog with us today! She’s our Family Strengthening Program Manager, here to share with you about a child she has been working with.

“龙龙有脑瘫,下肢严重变形,而且情况越来越严重.”

“LongLong lives with Cerebral Palsy. His lower limbs are severely deformed and his condition is getting more and more serious,” Erica shares.

”急需矫形支具,但因为他们住在很边远的山区,导致他出门非常不方便。“ 

“He needed orthopedic braces urgently, but because he and his family live in a very remote mountainous area, it is very difficult for him to get to any medical professionals.”


Nevertheless, Erica was determined to get LongLong the equipment he needed.

“从今年的6月开始,我开车带孩子去医院做评估、带他去残联递交申请,并联系厂家订做,虽然经过了好几个月的时间,但很幸运一切都很顺利。”

“Starting in June this year, I started driving the child to the hospital for evaluation. I took him to the Disabled Person’s Federation to submit an application and contacted the manufacturer to order the orthopedic brace. Even though it took several months, I was thankful that everything went well in the end.”

“8月份龙龙已经穿上了矫形支具和矫形鞋,他终于可以站起来了,真的非常为他感到高兴,也为我的工作能帮到他而感到自豪。”

“By August, LongLong had already started wearing the orthopedic brace and orthopedic shoes. He could finally stand up straight! I am really happy for him, and I am proud that my work can help him.”

Last year, Erica gave LongLong his first birthday party ever, at age 12. This month, they celebrated his 13th birthday together. His dad told us, “LongLong’s best friends are the Hope Station staff. So every time they come visit him, he’s so happy! They even bring him a gift whenever they come, we’re really so grateful!”

Erica is changing lives through her work every single day. And you can easily join her in making a difference!

”这个工作也让我感到特别的自豪,每次帮助家庭解决一个大困难,我都很开心!我会带着您的爱心去帮助更多的孩子的!谢谢您支持我的工作!“

“This job I do makes me feel very proud, and every time I help a family solve a difficult problem I feel very happy. With your love, I will be able to help more children in the future. Thank you for supporting my work!”
