Mr. Akshay Kumar

Mr. Akshay Kumar S/o Mr. Gopal Lal Bairwa is just only 22 years old when he left this world and gave life to 3 people through his organs (Kidneys and Liver).  Kumar was someone who always extended a helping hand to his friends and his family. He was leading a happy life as he was married just one-and-a-half-year ago. He has a daughter just a few months old. But, the fateful night of February 21 brought agony and pain. He was returning after attending the wedding ceremony of his friend when his motorbike skid and he suffered head injury in Niwai of Tonk district. His family rushed him to Jaipur for treatment. But, he never gained consciousness. He was declared ‘brain dead’.

Taking a brave decision, family members of Akshay Kumar, gave their consent for cadaveric organ donation during counseling. It was the 30th cadaveric organ donation reported in the state.

Family members gave their consent for kidney and liver donation but denied donation of heart and cornea because of their belief.

His liver was transplanted into a 52-year-old woman, who was Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) for a long time. Because of her medical condition, her liver was not functioning properly. Liver and one kidney were transplanted in Mahatma Gandhi hospital. Also, his other kidney was transported to Sawai Man Singh Hospital, where a 45-year-old woman received the kidney who was on dialysis for over a year. Her kidneys were not functioning because of certain medical renal disease.
