Became One Of The Youngest Organ Donors
The organ donation coordinator 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 counseled 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.”
Gave Life To 6 Other People
Her Kidney was donated to a 16-year-old-girl who underwent 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.” The second kidney was donated to a 5-year-old boy in Jaslok Hospital and he was given a new life. Moreover, the liver saved the life of a 32-year-old man who was admitted to Jaslok Hospital.
Fulfilled The Need For Others

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.” Furthermore, the eyes were donated to Roshni Eye Bank of Lilavati Hospital.
