Defying Death with Organ Donation

Defying Death with Organ Donation

Here's a touching story of the parents of Sivakumar. Sivakumar, their young child, was declared brain-dead. Most parents would have been shattered. They would have perhaps cursed their fate, cursed all folks around them (perhaps including the doctors), etc. These parents were special - They consciously decided to donate Sivakumar's kidneys, liver and eyes to other patients so that though Sivakumar was no longer with them, some human lives somewhere and their families will forever remember Sivakumar and his parents for the rest of their lives.

Though I felt sad for Sivakumar, this touching story brought a smile on my lips, a smile of relief on behalf of:

  • The recipients of the organs
  • Their families
  • All human beings at large!
