Gengxiang, 6, was severely burned in an accident involving a pile of burning straw last winter. Most of the skin on his head was burned off, requiring him to wear a full surgical mask to prevent the scars from becoming infected. The doctors disclosed that they cannot continue his skin-graft surgery until his damaged trachea, or windpipe, is strong enough, according to local media reports. Picture taken on September 8, 2011.

Chan Yeuk-pang, 48, poses with his son James Chan (R) in Hong Kong September 8, 2007. A worldwide shortage of organs has forced many people with end-stage illnesses to rely on living donors -- either relatives, or strangers from poorer countries where organs can be obtained cheaply -- to donate kidneys, liver sections, lung lobes, skin and bones for grafts. But the complications and risks for donors -- including bleeding, infection and in some cases death -- mean that many donors find their own health deteriorating after the operations. James Chan donated most of his liver to his father. Picture taken September 8, 2007. To match feature HEALTH-ORGANS/ REUTERS/Bobby Yip (CHINA)
