Tao Zhengliang from Shaoixng village is 55 years old and diagnosed with esophagus cancer. Tao had an operation in July 2011, and it has cost him over 200,000 yuan for the treatment in less than a year. Only 90,000 of the medical bills were covered by medical insurance. The rest of the medical bills, along with the family's whole income, rely on his 5-acre farm.
