According to news website the Daily Star, a PRC girl named Cao Meng Yuan sold her body online in order to raise money and pay for her ailing mother’s skin cancer treatment. 19 year old Meng Yuan put herself up for sale for RMB 350,000 and promised to do whatever the buyer asks her to do.
Cao’s mother, Wu Zhaofang is now undergoing cancer treatment at Gaozhou People’s Hospital in China. Wu was in a state of poor health and currently battling infections when Cao decided to sell her body for medical fees.
In her online advert, Cao Meng Yuan advertised that the winning bidder can “use her body at will” and she will “never go back on her word”. Lucky for Cao, a rich boss heard of her plight and covered her mother’s medical bills. It is unclear if Cao Meng Yuan had to exchange anything in return for the generous help.
