Chen Chen, a 3-year-old Chinese boy who receives care for a progressive disease that affects his eyesight at a pediatric hospital in Wuhan city, China, has become a star “doctor,” visiting, playing with and bringing joy to the other children undergoing treatment for their illnesses.

His “career” began after multiple visits to the hospital, when his mother bought him a medical uniform and gear. While being hospitalized himself, he started to check his ward mates. Chen Chen said it was his “responsibility to take care of patients.”
