A heartwarming story from the UK. A young lad named Raphael Harvard fell ill and needed a kidney transplant. Up stepped Raphael's dad, who signed up at Guy's in London for the procedure. All went well, and young Raphael now has one of his dad's kidneys, which should last him well into his adulthood.
A tremendous story, which aired on the BBC earlier today. I especially liked the moment when his dad came to visit the young lad (Dad was in Guy's, Raphael at Great Ormond St) after their operations and he immediately put his arms round his dad. An absolutely fantastic story, & good luck to both patients.
