Farmer couple donates daughter's organs | Updated: 2013-08-20 20:15

A mother in Kaihua, Zhejiang province, donated a host of her daughter's organs after the daughter died of a brain tumor, reported on Monday.

Xu Yuwen, a junior high student, died on June 11, 2012. During her treatments at more than 10 hospitals in the area, her mother Xu Mengxian, a 41-year-old farmer in Duimen village, which is in the county of Kaihua, and her husband decided to make the organ donations after they learned that a large number of patients were waiting for organ transplants.

The girl's kidneys, liver, cornea and heart were recently transplanted into six patients.

A month after their daughter died, Xu and her husband also signed a letter of intent to donate their organs after their deaths.
