The parents of 15-year-old Liel Naomi, who died as a result of edema of the brain, donated organs that saved the lives of four people aged seven to 68. According to Israel Transplant, the two lungs were given to a 68-year-old woman at the Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus; a liver to a 54-year-old woman at Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem; a kidney and pancreas to a 45-year-old woman at Sourasky Medical Center; and a kidney to a seven-year-old girl at Schneider Medical Center in Petah Tikva. The transplants were the first to be performed in 2013.

The donor died after a severe epileptic attack and was hospitalized at the Western Galilee Government Hospital in Nahariya. Brain edema developed immediately, and by Monday, her death was pronounced. Her family said saving life was foremost, and that the organ donations would commemorate the girl’s life.
