The author has simply explained the process to provide the required knowledge and courage to kids and their parents.
Speaking about the same, the author said, "My father had a kidney transplant in 1977, and the donor was my elder sister. This incident really created a huge impact on me. Hence I decided to research the subject. I started interacting with many organ failure patients, during my tenure as Sr. Program Manager at TRANSTAN ( Transplant Authority of Tamil Nadu), especially children and their parents, who made me, realize that there are many misconception and fears attached to the term 'Organ Transplant.' These incidents and interactions motivated me to write this simple book for children which will take their fears away. I have written this book after doing rigorous research on the topic. I have provided some valuable tips for parents on how to handle kids during such a difficult time and be positive. There is also a small dictionary of words for kids, which would be appropriate when they are undergoing the treatment. I hope kids and parents find the book useful and relevant."
The book is currently out and available on Amazon, Notion Press bookstore, Flipkart, and other e-commerce sites.
