The audience went through some emotional moments when a Std 5 student of St Kabir Naranpura Branch , Mahir Ghadiyali  shared his experience about his battle with cancer since the time he was in senior kg  and how the  timely transplant of stem cells by a kind live donor in Germany had helped him acquire a second life.

 His father made an important point by saying that they got the donor from Germany because they could not get one in India, due of lack of awareness in India on this subject and that is one of the reasons for him  to support this awareness programme in India.

Mr Piyush,   a young ,  cross over recipient , served as an inspiration to many, when he shared his experience of being an active and successful  professional  photographer and a gym trainer even after years of transplant !

However, the sharing of experience,  by a member of a cadaver donor family served as a role model for all in the audience , when she shared how proud her family was  today, for having  taken a timely decision to donate the organs of her mother in law  Mrs Sushila on being declared brain dead , even in the hour of grief , for saving someone’s life !
