Girl Donates Organs – level 2
Back in 2012, a 13-year-old girl from England decided to become an organ donor in case of her death. She was perfectly healthy, but she suddenly died just weeks after her decision.
It was very hard for her parents to respect her wish. The thought of donating their little girl’s organs made them feel ill. However, they did respect her decision.
Her organs (the heart, pancreas, lungs, kidneys, small bowel and liver) were donated to a record eight people. Five children were among them. A five-year-old boy received part of her liver, and he lives because of her brave decision.
Difficult words: donor (a person who donates – gives something), decide (think about something and then do it), decision (an act of deciding something).
