The death of a 52-year-old man did not stop his family from giving life to others. The family donated his organs which were quickly transplanted and ended up saving lives of six people in Mumbai.
Pyarelal Jaiswal, from Khadavali in Kalyan, was admitted Fortis hospital, Kalyan, on January 3, 2019 after suffering brain haemorrhage. After four days of treatment, he was declared brain dead by the doctors on January 7.
With a heavy heart, the family members set out to the hospital to donate his organs. The doctors explained them the procedure and the family approved to donate Pyarelal’s heart, kidneys, liver and corneas.
His son Mayur Jaiswal said his father had always worked to help people in need. “Taking forward his effort to help the community, we consented to donate his organs. This would be his biggest gift to society,” Mayur said.
Dr Supriya Amey, facility director, Fortis hospital, thanked the Jaiswals for their decision. “They have enabled life-saving surgeries on six patients with various organ failures,” said Amey.
