LITTLE HOPE

LITTLE HOPE
A father and mother kissing their dying little girl goodbye. If you are wondering why all the medic people are bowing: in less than an hour, two small children in the next room are able to live thanks to the little girl's kidney and liver.

Little Hope was born with cerebral palsy caused by hypoxic-ischemic encephelopathy, or lack of oxygen. Well-wishers from around China gave her the nickname, but after she turned 18 months old, her situation worsened, and she died. Her parents decided to donate her organs after her death, and doctors deemed her two kidneys and liver suitable for transplanting. Her organs were donated to a 33-year-old suffering from uremia — or chronic renal failure — and two children, including a seven-month-old baby girl with congenital biliary atresia, a digestive condition. The organs, though from a small child, will continue growing.
