Khalieghya’s family received word when she was five months old that the doctors had found a liver match because another child passed and the family members were generous enough to donate the child’s organs. Without this life saving transplant, Khalieghya would be dead; although, thanks to another grieving family, she is just like every other child. Instead of being locked away in a hospital her whole life, now she can play, run, jump, go anywhere she wants, and only has to take a small dose of anti-rejection medication twice a day (“A Chance to Be Just Like Other Children”). A little girl’s life was saved due to an inevitable accident, no single person can see the future; therefore, everybody should be prepared to give one last gift to another if their life is cut
This essay discusses the Terri Schiavo 's case during the time period between 1990 and 2005.After Ms. Schiavo suffers cardiac arrest, lack of oxygen leads her brain to damage. As a result of this damage, she had to be given a PEG tube to continue her life in the vegetative state. Her husband is appointed as guardian by the court, and Terri 's family do not reject that. Michael Schiavo-her husband- receives about $300,000 and about $750,000 for Ms. Schiavo’s medical care.After three years, he demands the PEG to be removed.However, Terri’s parents don’t want their daughter to be left for dead, hence the court trials, that lasted until 1985-Terri’s death, start. I think Ms. Schiavo’s PEG tube should have been removed earlier.

About a week thru the chemotherapy and radiation she lost all of her hair. When she first showed me she was losing her hair she started crying when she started I started because I don’t like to see my mom crying. When she lost all of her hair my sister got her some stylish wigs while she was going thru her chemo and radiation. About four months later she finished the chemotherapy and radiation. Right after that my mom’s hair started to grow back to be longer and thicker than it was.
An experience I had involving ethics in relation to an interprofessional collaboration was in my present nursing case. Prior to me starting my patient a 13-year-old girl had a severe asthma attack and went into cardiac arrest, died and was brought back to life this past February. Although the EMTs were able to bring her back, she has been in a coma ever since. What makes this case an ethical dilemma is that several months ago the doctors wanted to diagnose her as brain dead and remove her from life support. Through the use of medical terminology, lack of understanding about her daughter’s condition and unempathetic doctors they managed to convince the mother that her child had no hope of survival.
She received another push towards getting an education less than a year later when her older brother, Daniel, was diagnosed with cancer. “It threw my world into chaos,” said Cristina, “less than a year after losing my child, I was possibly going to lose my brother, who helped me so much after losing my child. You live in denial about things like this happening, but cancer runs in my family and my brother had it.” Her brother was one of the main reasons Arriola decided to go back to school as he stressed its importance. “Danny motivated me to go back to school and made me promise that I would no matter what happened,” said Cristina, “He knew how important it was and wanted me to have a good life.” Shortly after Cristina promised her brother that she would go to school, he passed away. “I didn’t go to school right away, but I knew that I would.” Needing a change, at 23 Cristina moved to Chicago, where she “saw a little bit more of the world and saw that [she] could go do more and be more.” While working in Chicago, she worked with people who had bachelor 's degrees and saw that she would really need to continue school in order to keep going with her
For organ donor recipients, organ transplants are often a second chance at life. Some people spend their whole lives struggling with one part of their body, which is holding them back from their everyday lives.

An example of someone who got that second chance is Charity Tilleman-Dick, an opera soprano whose an advocate for organ donation, and has had two double lung transplants. “I 'm alive today because a family in Ohio turned their tragedy into a miracle.
