Terminal illnesses nowadays cannot be considered an issue for the macabre anymore, as cancer takes away a life yet manages to save two others. At the young age of only three, angel child from Pennsylvania, Olivia Swedberg has fought against her terminal illness and unfortunately lost the battle to win her life. Although she did not manage to escape from her condition, her effort was not in vain.
According to researchers, Olivia did not stand any chance against the condition from which she suffered. Even though she has lost the fight against brain cancer, the mother of the young girl Lauressa Swedberg decided that it would be best to make the best out the situation and help other children who suffer from terminal illnesses.
According to George Mazariegos, doctor at the Lawrenceville who proceeded with a liver transplant, two year old Lucas Goellar, resident of Pennsylvania could not have been able to still be alive today, if not for little Olivia. It was only a manner of weeks until the boy would have died. Although Olivia and George did not share the same blood type, doctors have urged to proceed with the operation as nothing else could have been done.
Based on the latest interviews with the family, the transplant which lasted for almost a day seemed to be a success. Parents are now waiting to see further improvements to their boy’s condition as everything seems ‘too good to be true’.
But, little Lucas was not the only child that had been given another chance at life. Angelo Giomo of only 4 years old has suffered ever since he came into the world of a condition that had placed his intestines outside of his body. Thus, it has become a necessity for Angelo to be tied and receive nutrition from an IV at all times. As the procedure went on without any complications, yet again, Olivia’s death has made it possible for a boy of her age to receive a new spline and intestines.
Latest news have shown that parents of both boys are now waiting for their darling children to have a healthy recovery. As days pass, signs of improvements can be seen in the boy’s conditions, the press relates. It is because of this miracle child, that two other families can now be happily reunited. Thus, three families, from different backgrounds have now been brought together thanks to the soul of brave Olivia and the gift that she has given to them, the gift of life.
