How this Seven Year Old Boy saved Four Lives even after his Death 2


A Sydney-based Indian family came to a vacation trip to Mumbai early this year. When they were scheduled to return, their seven-year-old son Deyaan Udani complained of a severe headache. The Udani family initially thought the headache might be occurring because of the travel fatigue. They admitted Deyaan to Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai where doctors diagnosed multiple clots in his brain. They recommended surgery. Deyaan was quickly taken to P.D Hinduja Hospital and was operated on January 27 to release the pressure inside the brain. However, he didn’t recover and was declared brain dead on January 30. Even after death, the seven-year-old Deyaan saved four lives!

Deyaan was a student of Quakers Hill Public School in Sydney where he learned about organ donation which can save many lives. He was so moved that he would often request his father to list him as an organ donor. His mother Mili Udani also happens to be a registered organ donor herself. The Udani family fulfilled their son’s wish and donated his organs. Deyaan became the youngest organ donor after his parents donated his heart, kidneys and liver.

Deeyan became the youngest organ donor after his parents donated his organs

Deyaan’s heart was given to a two and half-year-old girl from Goregaon, who was suffering from an end-stage organ failure. The recipient is also the youngest to have undergone a heart transplant in Mumbai. His kidneys were donated to an 11-year-old and a 15-year-old admitted in Jaslok hospital. The liver went to a 31-year-old in Jupiter hospital.




The mother of the young girl who was given Deyaan’s heart was in tears when she said, “Deyaan came into our lives like an angel and gave us the greatest gift. It is priceless to see your child smile and talk.”

Deeyan’s nine-year-old sister Naisha addressed a huge crowd on organ donation in Mumbai on February 14, two weeks after his brother’s death. She shared her brother’s story and also announced that “I will donate my organs when I grow up. I am proud to have known my brother.”
