The last three months have been a rollercoaster for the Hernandez family after their 6-month old’s life was saved by a living donor.
Sarah and Kevin were celebrating the birth of their first child Eden, when they realized something was wrong and she would need a liver donor. Just before time ran out, they found someone almost a thousand miles away.
Time was running out to find a donor, so the family went to social media asking anyone with Type O blood to step up. Well, Smita Nadia Hussain stepped up to be Eden’s donor and she just happens to be Kevin’s cousin who lives a thousand miles away in New Jersey.
The Hernandez family hopes this will inspire others to give the gift of life through organ donations because there are still so many children and adults on the transplant waiting list.
