Lesson in courage from teacher battling health

Teacher Hua Jungang takes an outdoor English class in his home at the Dongyu village, Qingxu county of Taiyuan, North China's Shanxi province, April 30, 2012. The 39-year-old had both legs amputated due to a previously unknown disease when he was just graduating from college in 1994. The amputee started to hold English training courses in his home as a way of realizing his dream of becoming a teacher in 1997. More than 1,700 students have taken his courses throughout the past 15 years. While Hua's career was on a roll, he was dealt another blow in 2009 when he was diagnosed with kidney failure. Having sold all his property for the high-cost of dialysis twice a week, he still manages to continue his courses. [Photo/CFP]
