There is now a common thread between 59-year-old Krishna Bose, a railway employee, and 45-year-old A Vimala Hasan, a scientist working with National Aerospace Limited.
Bose was suffering from liver failure and Hasan from kidney failure. They received organs in a city hospital recently from the same cadaver donor.
While both are unaware of who the donor was, they are thankful to the donor for gifting them a second innings of life.
Bose displayed the first symptom of liver failure on a trip to Haridwar. A resident of Kolkata, on her way home back, doctors from the Railways Hospital confirmed she had second stage liver failure. "We came to our daughter's house and consulted doctors from Manipal Hospital. At the same time, I enrolled with the zonal co-ordination committee in Karnataka for transplants (ZCCK)," said Bose.
