The heroic action of 19-year-old Rakhi Dutta who donated 65% of her liver to save her father’s life has been going viral on social media.
Rakhi’s father was fighting a losing battle against Jaundice when he was rushed to AIG hospital in Hyderabad by Rakhi and her sister. He had lost 90% of his liver, and a liver transplant was crucial for his survival. She shared that on hearing the doctors say that her liver would be suitable and would grow back in about 3-4 months, she didn’t hesitate or think twice about donating a portion of her liver. After this, Rakhi underwent a series of 109 tests and a 15-hour procedure to donate 65% of her liver. Her friend Devarchita Das first shared the news on his facebook on April 15th.
