They took yet another tough decision of donating Olivia's liver. As soon as they decided, they even found a recipitent.
Lauressa, the girl's mother saw this terminally ill child Lucas who had a swollen belly. Lauressa wanted to see Lucas receiving the help, but it was still not clear that who will receive the organ.
Lauressa woke up a morning with the news of her dead child and that Lucas has received the liver. She was having mixed feelings running through the ocean of her heart.
Olivia's other organs were donated to a boy named Angelo Giorno, who was also going through some severe illness.
She donated 6 Organs to Angelo. These organs were the heart, liver, kidneys, intestines and pancreas, as well as one of her eyes were removed. Still Angelo could not survive as he was born too early.
With her kidney, she saved a 22-year-old man. Her pancreas and intestines gave Angelo some weeks to live. Her heart gives a 1-year-old a new life. Her eye helps a blind man to see. And her liver gave Lucas his life back.
The 2-Year-Old spent most of his childhood life in a hospital but came out healthy only due to Olivia's help. Now Lucas can run and play as any other kid of his age.
