The boy you see in the photos below, 9 year old Armin Mehinbasic from Gracanica got last Friday from the French Hospital for Children “Purpon” in Toulouse, call for cadaveric kidney transplantation, after more than one year of waiting on the France national waiting list due transplantation program of OPEN NETWORK.
When the French doctors told Armins’ mother Senida, only six hours after transplantation that everything went more then perfect when it comes to his surgery, she couldn’t believe it. Level of his creatinine when he came to Toulouse was over six hundred, and immediately after transplantation it reduced to three hundred. Already the next day, only 24 hours after transplantation, Armin’s creatinine was 49. His doctor told us, “You can be calm, Armin has creatinine like healthy baby boy.”
All sides of this story are well known for mother of this boy Senida Mehinbasic. She is first kidney donor in the program of OPEN NETWORK to her daughter Samra Mehinbasic who is also successfully transplanted in the same hospital in Toulouse three years ago. For five years Senida brought her daughter Samra every other day to dialysis in Hospital in Tuzla (dialysis in BiH and in European center are not the same) and walked with her through hell we can not even imagine. Samra was placed on French national waiting list and this program of OPEN NETWORK was her only hope. And then another tragedy happened – Samra without any reasonable excuse receive a large amount of blood transfusions in a form that the patient who is on the waiting list can not receive, because it will take away the opportunity for cadaveric transplantation or the ability to receive a kidney from a deceased donor. Then the on the “scene” comes strongest force in the world – mother’s love. Senida Mehinbasic decided to be a donor, now that it was the only chance for Samra.
As we have already mentioned above the story is successfully completed here in Toulouse. Unfortunately, while examining the cause of Samra’s kidney failure, French doctors revealed that her at that time 8 years old brother Armin, can expect the same kidney illness. We did everything that Armin come the soonest possible to French national waiting list where the children are a priority, and we succeed. In the days when this European country is all bursting with energy for the second most important thing in the world and when European nationality crave for good result, we witness together with you to another victory and brilliant “result”, “result” 2-0 for life in family Mehinbasic.
Let’s move on.
