小编摘要:一次和陌生人的交谈,却改变了英国妇女Manoly Viravong的命运。她万万也没有想到,她的这位“新朋友”会愿意捐肾给自己。

导读:45岁的英国妇女Manoly Viravong多年来深受肾病困扰。近年来她的身体更是每况愈下。原本想捐肾给她的弟弟也改变了主意,这也让她的生命进入了倒计时阶段。

不过,她万万没有想到,自己和陌生人的一次交谈,会改变她的生命。她在朋友的结婚纪念日派对上,认识了53岁的Veronica Buttigieg。在听到了Manoly的经历后,Veronica竟然提出将自己的一个肾脏捐献给这位刚刚认识的新朋友。

Manoly不敢相信自己的耳朵,她一再确认,得到了肯定的答案。Veronica在一所医院教生病的小朋友,因此,为了不影响她的工作,手术在暑假的第一天举行。术后两人都恢复的很好,这场共同的经历也让两人成为挚友。

现在Veronica只有一个肾了,但是她依旧努力工作,并坚持去健身房锻炼。她表示自己从未后悔过做出这样的决定。“如果让我再做一次选择,我仍然会选择捐肾。”

It was a chat with a stranger at a party that saved Manoly Viravong’s life.


The mother of two, who had been waiting for a kidney transplant for five years, struck up a conversation with Veronica Buttigieg, a friend of a friend she had never spoken to before.

The talk turned to health and Mrs Viravong’s disappointment that her brother had decided against donating one of his kidneys to her.

But Mrs Buttigieg, 53, did more than just politely sympathise. Over the clink of glasses and chatter of the other guests, she made an amazing offer.

‘Why not have one of my kidneys?,’ she asked.

Two months later, the operation took place and Mrs Viravong, 45, is well on the way to recovery.

Mrs Buttigieg, who lives with her husband Mario, 54, a painter and decorator, said she would happily donate again if she could.

‘I barely knew Manoly but after talking to her and hearing of how desperate she was, I felt it was the right thing to do,’ she said.

Mrs Viravong, who has suffered from kidney problems for 18 years, is still astonished at her good fortune.

‘I did not know Veronica very well at all. We have a mutual friend and I had seen her at social gatherings a handful of times but we had never really talked,’ she recalled.

‘Shortly after arriving at the party, which was a friend’s 40th wedding anniversary, she offered me her kidney. Just in a really casual way.
