Transplant Child Gets Organs From Parents
Little Jasmine Mirza has become the first child in Britain to get organ transplants from both parents.
The five-year old is recovering after being given one of her mother’s kidneys and a portion of her father’s liver.
The parents - Sohrab Mirza and Cathie Locke - have spoken of their delight at being able to give Jasmine the gift of a normal life.
“She is more part of us now than she ever would have been,” said Mr Mirza, 38.
