A man dressed up as Peppa Pig recently to sell pancakes near a hospital in Jinan, capital of east China’s Shandong Province, to cover his daughter's medical fees after she was diagnosed with diabetes in 2016, The Paper reported.

Zhou Yingfang, from Jining's Yanzhou, also in east China’s Shandong Province, said he dressed up as the popular cartoon figure because his daughter is a big fan of the series. 

The man brought pancakes from his home town and sells them for 5 yuan (80 US cents) each.

Zhou has already spent 230,000 yuan within about a year and is currently 160,000 yuan in debt. He aims to make about 200,000 yuan, the amount required for his 3-year-old daughter Zhou Mengna to undergo stem cell transplantation in Beijing.

The toddler is at risk of blindness or even amputation if she is not treated in time, the report said.
