The patient has not died instead she will live in six different lives and in hearts of all of us for her kind act. Organs of a deceased patient can save lives of at least six people. It is a noble act and I am elated to see that people are gaining awareness about cadaveric organ donation. We are thankful to NOTTO for having a belief in Jaypee Hospital and helping us to lead this mission. We, at Jaypee Hospital have started an initiative called G.O.O.D (Gift of Organ Donation) to encourage people to come forward and give a gift of life to people by donating their organs.”
“We are proud of our sister for this noble act. All her life she has lived for others and after her death too she has been a reason for spreading happiness in six families by giving a new life to their loved ones”, said Mahinder Kumar Joshi, younger brother of the deceased.
The liver of the deceased has been transplanted to a 42 year old male from Hapur, Uttar Pradesh while the transplanted kidney has saved a life of a 35 year old male, a resident of Dwarka.
