The mother of a one-year-old girl brought her to the hospital since it was obvious that her health had gotten worse.
The girl had a severe type of meningitis, the doctors told her. The child’s kidneys soon failed, and she was kept artificially alive while in a coma.
The young girl was only kept alive by machines, thus her odds of survival were minimal. The girl’s mother, Jennifer, made the decision to give her organs to other children who needed them for survival.
