San Miguel de Allende (May, 26, 2021).- After several minutes of applause, an organ donor from San Miguel was dismissed at the facilities of the General Hospital “Dr. Felipe G. Dobarganes ”.
This is a 48-year-old man, originally from a ranchería, who after his death was able to procure both kidneys, corneas, and musculoskeletal tissue for other patients in need.
Before being taken to the procurement room, he was honored by his relatives and medical staff in the corridors of the hospital, in an atmosphere of sadness, but with great pride because he has become an organ donor to give life to other people on the waiting list of a transplant.
His family was given a cape with the legend life-giving hero, which was placed to cover the coffin.
The State Transplant Center team continues to promote donation despite the decline in donors due to the pandemic.
