Father’s kidney gives son (5) a new life

A little five years old boy, Sam Kinahan, whose mother comes from Mullingar, underwent lifesaving surgery last week when his father Ivan had a kidney removed at Beaumont Hospital and soon after, at Temple Street Hospital the little boy received the kidney donated by his father.

Now, as the child recovers in Temple Street, his future life prospects have been greatly enhanced, thanks to the special gift he has received from his dad as well, as to the constant care he has been given by his parents over the first five years of his life.
