7 years after receiving a kidney from her father, she gets one from mom too!
Azia Hassan was merely 4 years old when she underwent her first kidney transplant, her dad was the donor. Sadly, by October 2017, that kidney almost failed and it became clear Azia needed a new one urgently and only weekly dialysis would keep her alive.
That’s when her mom Uzma Asghar stepped forward to ‘gift’ her darling daughter one of her kidneys.
She said: “If I can survive with one kidney and Azia desperately needs the other to live as normal a life as possible, why wouldn’t I choose to donate?”
“I had been tested before when she had her first operation, so I knew I was a match. My ex-husband was found to be a better match so he donated his. She will be on medication for life – but that’s OK. Fingers crossed, she can finally start living like a normal 12-year-old girl,” Uzma added.
Azia is now one of only a handful of children to have received a kidney from both parents.
