During the early morning, Daisy Gutiérrez, an 11-year-old girl, was treated urgently in a hospital after suffering kidney failure, a disease that can only be completely cured through a kidney transplant. Although it is a disease that can be treated with dialysis, it is a treatment that does not improve the condition of the patient and prevents him from leading a normal life.
Fortunately, Daisy obtained the support of the Carlos Slim Foundation and is now one of the more than 9,000 people who have received a transplant through the support of this foundation and who can continue with a dignified life.
While currently in Mexico there are 22 thousand people waiting for an organ or tissue that allows them to improve their quality of life or survive a complicated disease, only 1,218 donor transplants are carried out per year, mainly due to the lack of organs available.
How to be part of the #DecisionesQueDanLida?
Become an organ donor! We can all be a donor. However, even if your final decision is to donate all the organs that doctors consider can be transplanted to another person, when the time comes, the final decision will be with your family members. That is why it is important to let them know that it is your will so that they can support your decision.
Become a hero on National Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplantation Day
Once you have decided to become a hero for life, after informing yourself and knowing the implications of this important decision, you can get a donor card, although legally your family will have the final decision in case of doing so upon death.
Remember that on this National Organ and Tissue Donation and Transplantation Day you should not rush to make a decision, but it is a good time to inform yourself and learn about the advantages of becoming an organ donor and help save thousands of more lives.
