"Svyatoslav is 59. In the past, he is an ambulance driver. He survived two heart attacks, the last one at work. For a week with chest pain, he still carried and carried patients, not knowing that the heart was critically affected. He was told that only transplantation would be saved. And already 12 hours in his chest beats a healthy heart ...
The man who rescued two people after death (another patient got a kidney) was 42 years old. He too was once a military man. He died of a stroke. His wife, sister and mother agreed to donate. Doctors, they say, did not even have to talk about the importance of such a decision for a long time, they agreed immediately because they wanted their relatives to continue living after death.
The memory of the man before taking his organs in the operating room was honored with a moment of silence. And in intensive care today both Dmitry and Svyatoslav thanked the family for their decision. The solutions they will now live by.
