  Jiajia, a 4-and-a-half-year-old girl from Xiangyang, Hubei, suffered brain death from glioma. At the last moment of her life, she donated a liver, two kidneys and a pair of corneas to people in need.

  "The child did not go far, she just continued to live in other people's lives." Jiajia's mother, Ms. Kang, said in an interview on the 14th.

  At the end of 2020, Jiajia, who has always been healthy, suddenly had difficulty urinating and was finally diagnosed with glioma.

Her parents took her to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and other places to seek medical treatment, but because the tumor was too large, almost all doctors said they were unable to recover.

  In March of this year, Jiajia's condition further deteriorated, and her parents took her to Wuhan Tongji Hospital.

After trying various treatments, Jiajia's body is still deteriorating.

On April 13, Jiajia fell into brain death.

  "My daughter is so cute, she always likes to help others, can she help others one last time?" Amidst grief, Ms. Kang offered to donate Jiajia's organs.

After persuading her family to agree, she contacted the Coordinator of the Organ Procurement Organization (OPO) of Wuhan Tongji Hospital.

On the afternoon of the 13th, Jiajia completed the organ donation.

Before organ donation, the doctors and nurses bowed to Jiajia.

  Ms. Kang told reporters that in donating her daughter’s organs, in addition to hope that her daughter’s life can be continued in another way, it is more important because as a witness, she knows the importance of organ donation to a life.

  It turned out that before Jiajia, Ms. Kang had a daughter, Rui Rui, but she was diagnosed with grade 3 congenital biliary atresia shortly after she was born, and she eventually developed liver failure.

Although Ms. Kang tried her best to cut her liver to save her daughter, she still failed to keep Rui Rui.

  Ms. Kang said that during the process of seeking medical treatment with Ruirui, she saw some lives dying because of not waiting for suitable organs. She also deeply felt the helplessness and heartache of the parents.

Therefore, when she knew that Jiajia's life could not be saved, she was still willing to donate her child's organs, even though she was reluctant, to bring hope to others.

The parents bid farewell to the masterpiece.

  Ms. Kang introduced that when Jiajia was sober, she also asked her daughter: "If one day becomes an angel in the sky, can you leave the useful things in your body to those in need?" Nodded.

  It is reported that the liver and kidney donated by Jiajia have been transplanted, saving the lives of a child with liver failure and two children with renal failure, and the donated cornea will also help two people see the light again.
