Organ Donation Crusader Passes Away

A crusader of organ donation in India passed away in Pune. She was Ms.Nayan Dhamdhere.

She constantly worked for the cause even when she was low on her health. On many occasions she answered over 100 phone calls a day on the subject. Nayan was close to many in the medical fraternity. Some admired her and some were even were scared her of her guts and her free spirit. She always had the support of MOHAN Foundation as she was a true member and volunteer of the Foundation.

Nayan was true crusader. She was suffering from Budd Chiari Syndrome. This causes portal hypertension and liver failure due to blockage of vein between the liver and the body. This blockage results in congestion of liver resulting in its fibrosis. For this she had undergone a
