VIRAL: Dying 22-year-old rejects Organ donation to complete her bucket list!!


Channan Petrides, 22.
Dying 22-year-old rejects Organ donation to complete her bucket list!!  

A 22-year-old who is suffering from Cystic Fibrosis turned down an organ donation after her doctors said that she only has a year to live and if she decides to proceed with the organ transplant she could die on the operating table or 6 months after the operation if her body fails to accept the Organ. Channan Petrides, took off the option of having an organ transplant after weighing the hidden risk so she could be able to complete the things on her bucket list. It was a very heartbreaking decision for her family but they did come to understand it as time goes by and they just supported Channan’s decision on her life.

Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic condition where the Lungs and the Digestive system gets clogged by thick sticky mucus. Patients often feels like they’re breathing through a plastic bag that was placed over their heads and most patients who have undergone organ transplant have to learn how to breathe properly all over again because their body isn’t used to taking so much air. Typically, a life expectancy of 40 is usually observed from those who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis but Ms. Petrides health began to decline when she was 19-years-old.

It was first observed when Doctors seem to have noticed that she had problems gaining weight as a newborn. She said “I was a normal kid. I loved sport. I was captain of Little Thurrock Dynamos football team in Essex.
“When I got a bit older, I’d go out with friends, go to festivals – typical teenage things.
 “I broke up with my then boyfriend when I was 19 and the stress made me lose weight.
“From there, I began developing chest infections and even got pneumonia and swine flu.”

She then created a Bucket List which she shared on Facebook which has already gathered more than 35,000 shares. One activity on her list that was already done was a helicopter ride over London. But her ultimate aim is to walk the Red Carpet of the Brit awards.
