Thanks to the Supreme Sacrifice of Donor Family from Anandpur Sahib,
Mangewal, Anandpur Singh, Punjab
Date of Donation: 8th April, 2018
Chanchel Dev 54 year old resident of Mangewal, Anandpur Sahib, Punjab didn’t know what fate has to offer next when out on a routine morning walk on 5th of April, he was fatally hit by a two wheeler and became unconscious due to severe head injury. After initial treatment in Civil Hospital, Anandpur Sahib, Chanchal Dev was referred to PGIMER and was admitted here on 6th April and declared brain dead.
When Chanchal Dev’s wife, Shakuntala Devi, was discussed about the option of Organ Donation, her magnanimity was beyond the comprehension of any words, when she said, “There can’t be anything more painful than losing your spouse. Nothing in this world can fill the void which has been created by his untimely death. With organ donation, not only he will stay in our hearts, he will stay in the hearts of those also, whom he has given life while going from this world.”
And she made her husband immortal by consenting for organ donation and saving the lives of hapless and helpless terminal patients.
