(Scroll down for video) A mother wanted to sacrifice her life so that her son can live a comfortable life.

The mother of China, was very distraught over her son’s medical condition and his lack of funds to pay for his hospital stay.

She wanted to help pay for his mounting medical bills, but she did not have the money so she committed suicide.

The woman left a suicide note, explaining that she decided to kill herself so that her son can use the money he receives from her insurance policy to pay for his hospital bills. “I'll be fine, I will help you get the money you need,” she wrote.

She was hoping her son would get 300,000 yuan (about $46,000.) Sadly, she died in vain because her policy had expired almost one year before her death.

The 63-year-old woman died after falling nine floors from her son's balcony in Shenzhen.

The son revealed that he was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis, a type of arthritis that left him unable to turn his head or move his hips.

He needs a hip replacement, which is very expensive.
