Death of Prakash


Prakash was a 31 year old very enthusiastic young man who was full of vitality. He had undergone a successful cadaver transplant three year ago at one of the hospitals in Chennai. He hailed from Erode and committed to the cause of promoting organ donation and cadaver transplantation. He often visited Chennai and made it a point to visit the foundation premises and discuss issues on how cadaver transplantation activities could be improved. On his last visit to the foundation he decided to leave his lucrative job in finance company and join the foundation full time . He was supposed to have represented the foundation at All India Transplant games at Lucknow and wanted to bid for Chennai as venue for next transplant games. He was a good athlete and had represented his school and college in his student days.

Unfortunately, it was not to be. He suddenly fell ill on his way home and had to be hospitalized. Apparently he had fulminant chickenpox infection to which he succumbed rapidly.

Prakash, as his name truly indicates, always filled us with a lot of enthusiasm and charged us every time he visited the foundation. In his death we have lost an active champion of this programme in India. We at the foundation, mourn his death and have sent our condolences to his family members.
