In the heartbreaking incident, an eight-year-old Mumbai girl experienced a brain stroke and was rushed to Lilavati Hospital. Despite the steps taken by the doctors, she passed away eventually. Brain aneurysms are very rare in children and are highly fatal when cracked.
However, after her death, she became one of the youngest organ donors of Mumbai. Today, her organs saved the lives of six other people, the doctors of Lilavati Hospital confirmed the news.
She may not be living but she is living in people’s hearts. The organ donation coordinator identified as Pramod Shinge from Lilavati hospital said “As per regulations, we conducted the first confirmatory test in the morning and second one at 6.30pm, after which we counselled the family about the possibility of organ donation. The family was aware of the practice and agreed readily to donate her heart, kidneys, liver, and eyes.”
Organ donation is the best thing which you can do to save the lives of others after your lifespan. She gave life to 4 other people. Her Kidney was donated to a 16-year-old-girl who had gone through the transplant after her secondary school exam.
Pramod Shinge further added “She had appeared for her Hindi paper on Tuesday and as the donor’s organ matched her specifications, her father agreed to the surgery on the same day. Family members said that since pediatric transplants are a rarity, it’s better to opt for the transplant rather than letting her continue appearing for exams.”
On the other hand, the second kidney was donated to a 5-year-old boy in Jaslok Hospital and he was given a new life as well. Not just that! the liver saved the life of a 32-year-old man who was admitted to Jaslok Hospital. He is doing just fine.
Additionally, a 10-year-old girl was desperately in need of a heart as the functioning of her heart to pump blood started slowing down. The hospital staff told, “She was waiting for an organ since September 2017 and we had even run a crowd-funding operation as the family was not able to bear the expenses. The harvested heart reached the hospital at 6.41am and Dr. Anvay Mule performed a successful transplant surgery.”
Her eyes were also donated to Roshni Eye Bank of Lilavati Hospital.
