A Korean army corporal donated his vacation days and bone marrow to save a high school student's life. 


The Korean Army's official Facebook page posted a story of Corporal Lee Jae Chang, warming up many people's hearts. 


The story shared that Corporal Lee registered as a bone marrow donor back when he was still a college student. Months later, when Lee entered his mandatory military service, he received news that he matched 100% with a high school student who was suffering from hematologic malignancy -- a cancer of the blood and bone marrow.

Lee hesitated for a little bit because now he was in the army, and unlike when he was in college, he was already risking his safety on a daily basis and also had limited free days. However, that thought did not last long; Lee decided that being a soldier was no reason to reject the donation request. 


Not only did Lee gladly donate his bone marrow, he also gave up more than half of his vacations days -- 9 days -- in order to complete the medical examinations and also to finally donate his bone marrow. And because of Corporal Lee's sacrificial act, the high school senior could regain hope on a new life.

    With all the horrible shit going on in South Korea right now about the president, and how the mics at the AAA messed up so many stages, this is just what we all need to be reading to regain a little hope. A salute to you, Corporal.
