Siblings Donate Lungs To Save Brother

An Israeli brother and sister decided to help save the life of their sick brother (who suffers from leukemia) by each donating a part of their lung.

(Israel Today) A brother and sister of a 35-year-old man suffering from a chronic lung disease successfully each donated a lower lobe of their lungs, saving his life. This was the first successful live-donor lung transplant in Israel, which was necessary because of the lack of donors. [...]

The donors recovered quickly, while their brother remains in an intensive care unit of the cardiothoracic surgery department.

My sympathies and prayers go to the brother who is still in the hospital. Hopefully he can recover quickly and rejoin his kin as being in a hospital is not exactly a fun experience.
