17-year-old Payal was declared brain dead a day before her 18th birthday. Despite the excruciating pain her parents felt they made a decision that would save the lives of many! Payal may have passed away but she lives on through the five others to whom her organs were donated. The cadaver transplantation of the 17-year-old was carried out here after her parents consented to organ-harvesting realising that their brain-dead daughter will never return. Her two corneas two kidneys and liver have already been transplanted in five patients who urgently needed the organs. It was an emotional decision for all of us.
