UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Two-year-old Kazmirr Landers died in the summer of 2018, drowning in a pool. Brooke Eaton, his mother, decided to give the organs of her deceased son to sick children in need of transplantation.
Such a patient was Lola Bond – a five-month-old girl with a severe heart disease. The girl was diagnosed with congenital cardiomyopathy.
The heart muscle could not cope with the load, and therefore Lola needed a transplant.
This became clear about 2 weeks after the birth of the girl into the world, but the organ suitable for transplantation was found only after 4.5 months.
Not so long ago, Brooke was able to meet Lola and her parents, as well as hear how the heart of her dead son beats. “I was able to feel the connection with my son. My heart was beating so loudly, ”she said after picking up the 16-month-old girl in her arms.
Lola’s condition has improved significantly. She is forced to take drugs that prevent rejection – this must be done for life, but doctors are sure that the girl will have a normal childhood. However, doctors do not exclude that a second transplant is required.
