(Scroll down for video) A man is doing whatever he can to pay for his daughter’s medical bills.

Now, the father who is running out of money, has resorted to selling sanitary napkins while disguised as a woman.

32-year-old Wang Hai Lin of Sichuan, China, desperately needs to raise money for the medical treatment of his daughter, who has cancer.

Lin who lives in Chengdu, made about 1,000 yuan ($1 = 6.13 yuan) a month as a cook in a hotel. In March, his daughter Wang Yaqin, was diagnosed with leukemia, and has since undergone six sessions of chemotherapy.

The family has depleted most of their 20,000 yuan savings. His wife works at a gas station in Shandong, and is the main breadwinner while Lin cares for the sick child.

Lin supplements the family income by selling different brands of sanitary napkins on the street while his daughter is at his side.

He disguises himself as a woman, wearing a red wig, pink top and pants, and covers his facial hair with a surgical mask, to make the process easier.

He placed a cardboard sign which read: “I’m selling sanitary napkins to raise money to save my 2-year-old daughter. Please be kind-hearted and help us out. Thank you very much.”
