Sakshi, a kidney & the super granny!

Posted on Updated on

Grannies are often the first source of comfort for a kid in an extended family.

It happens at times, without us even knowing – how much we learn, we become – a crystallized metaphor of our previous generations.

Humans have progressed rapidly in the past few decades & so have the complexities of life. Grannies having have lived through this evolutionary phase have given us wonderful insights – mostly bedtime stories – stories in our memories forever.

Then there are super grannies!

Grannies who have gone out of the way to achieve fame, achieve positions.

And then, there are grannies who have given a new lease of life to her grandchild.

This is the story of Sakshi. Sakshi & her super granny.

Barely 9 years old, Sakshi started facing problems.

Health problems.

Serious health problems!

Imagine, being unable to attend school, play with friends, watch TV & have doctors visit your home fairly regularly. Chronic kidney failure, was identified as the root cause – dialysis first & then the harrowing search for a donor. It was billed as a tough task for young Sakshi, but for her granny.

Not her mother, not her father was able to match the requirements for their daughter, seeing which the family Patrician stood up & willingly proved to be a match for the family’s angel.

Such organ donation cases are the need of an hour, such stories that offer a ray of hope, motivation to those who have this concept in mind but take too much time to convert it on paper and above all SAVE LIVES!

      A good sentiment. Quite visible among families in rural India.

        Family support – absolutely essential. Here visibly, more than ever. But also to be noted is the fact that science and medicine has progressed to such a level that modern day miracles are now possible. Young lives are saved. More hope for others is created.

    Agree with other comments. My cousin had to undergo Kidney transplant and her 70+ years old mother donated her kidney when none other matched. But she had to undergo more treatment after about 10 years recently. Hope the longevity of such transplants would increase in the near future.

      Unfortunately, after about 10 years of transplant, proper medication & care; there are still chances that a person may require a yet another transplant. Medical Sciences are improving, but then some fields take time, others don’t.
