According to the boy, ”When Papa was diagnosed with liver failure, I was shocked! He never smoked or drank. And when the doctor said, ‘Without a donor, he has 6 months to live, I felt helpless.”
“Papa told me, ‘I don’t want to die. I want to see you graduate!’ Our home became morose. And during that time, the 2nd COVID wave hit; I got the virus! While isolating, I’d cry, I’m not there for Dad when he needs me!’ To keep Papa positive, I’d video call him & let him beat me in Ludo. We’d reassure each other that we’ll get through this. But after I recovered, Papa got the virus! He was rushed to the hospital regularly so I’d sit beside him & study for my exams,” he added.
“I couldn’t bear to see Dad suffer anymore! So I told my family, ‘I’m going to save him. I’ll donate my liver.”
To be eligible to donate his liver, he had to lose weight and adhere to a strict diet and exercise routine. His father, on the other hand, was concerned about the operation. According to the article:
