Alexei Yelisayev, a seven-year-old boy who suffered brain death after a brain tumor in his brain stem discovered at Assaf Harofeh Medical Center, saved three other children and a young woman with his organs over the weekend. He was born in Israel and loved toys and books about science, said his parents, who were immigrants from the former Soviet Union.

They agreed to donate his liver (transplanted into a 27-year-old woman at the Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva); his heart and lungs (given to a seven-year-old boy at nearby Schneider Children’s Medical Center); a kidney in a three-year-old boy at Haifa’s Rambam Medical Center; and the other kidney in an 18-year-old girl at Rambam.
