57-year-old woman donates bones and 5 other organs

Read Time:37 Second

In a rare case, the family of a 57-year old engineer from Virar agreed to donate her bones along with five other organs after she was declared brain dead in a city hospital. It is Mumbai’s first bone donation this year.

On August 22, the woman suffered a massive intracranial bleed and was rushed to Nanavati Hospital. She suffered irreversible brain damage as a result of extensive and rapid bleeding. The hospital’s transplant coordinator then contacted the family.

In 2004, the woman had pledged to donate all her organs if she suffered brain death in the future. Eighteen years after she pledged all her organs, her family honoured her wish by donating the heart, liver, kidneys, pancreas, corneas and bones.
