US doctor donates bone marrow to save a child’s life, ET HealthWorld


This doctor was motivated by the inspiring story of a friend who had saved someone battling cancer through a similar donation. Recently, an Instagram account known as “Good News Movement” shared a post that has garnered praise from people worldwide.

In the state of Florida, USA, a pediatric doctor named Ali Alsamarah, working at a non-profit hospital in Ocala, received a life-changing call while he was at home. The caller informed him that he was the best match for a child in desperate need of a bone marrow transplant.


Initially hesitant, Alsamarah eventually decided to undergo the necessary procedures. He expressed that his decision was influenced by witnessing his friend’s life being saved by a donor. He hopes to inspire others to consider becoming donors to save lives as well.

The post, which was uploaded just two days ago, has gained significant attention and received praise from netizens. Users flooded the comments section with words of admiration for the doctor’s courageous act and showed their support by liking the post.

One user left a heartfelt comment on Instagram, saying, “The child you’ve saved will remember you forever, and that’s a special gift for them and their family.” Others expressed their appreciation for the doctor’s beautiful gesture, with comments such as “The planet Earth needs more examples like this” and “Thank you, Doc, for going above and beyond for your patient. You’re a hero!”

Earlier this year, a viral post on social media showcased a video of Elisabeth Anderson-Sierra, a woman who holds the Guinness World Record for the largest individual breast milk donation. She hails from Aloha, Oregon, USA, and donated a remarkable 1,599 litres of milk between 2015 and 2018, helping to save thousands of children.
