When seven-year-old Deyaan Udani learned about organ donation at school, he was excited to share the news with his father Rupesh.

None of them could have imagined that just months later a sudden tragedy would claim the young boy's life — and leave his parents with the heartbreaking choice to honour their son's wish and give four others a second chance at life.

In this emotional episode, Rupesh shares his story and how he has since dedicated his free time to raising awareness of organ and tissue donation.

He is joined by Blacktown Hospital intensive care specialist Dr Dhaval Ghelani, who explains the process of organ donation and addresses people's concerns and misconceptions.
