In an unusual tale, a 36-year-old woman received a kidney from her mother-in-law, who stepped in after the patient’s mother went back on her decision to help.

Kavita, who lives in West Delhi’s Uttam Nagar, was asked to undergo a kidney transplant for which her mother agreed to donate a kidney. However, at the last minute she refused. It was then that her mother-in-law, Vimla (65), came forward.

“It was a decision nobody expected. It was something that does not happen nowadays.” “After undergoing tests, we found Vimla fit to donate her kidney. The surgery took place on June 23. Both the donor and recipient are fine,” said Dr. Aditya Pradhan.
Dr. Sunil Prakash said: “It is not a reel life story, but a real one with a happy ending. Kavita underwent a successful kidney transplantation. It is amazing to see such a relationship between Kavita and her mother-in-law. ”

“This is the first instance we have seen of a mother-in-law coming forward to donate her kidney to her daughter-in-law. Also, it is remarkable since the donor belongs to a community where the gender bias is strong. This donor overcame all objections and consented to donate a kidney,” added Dr. Pradhan.

In Vimla’s own words: “I wanted to save her life. She is my daughter, not just my daughter in law.”
