At that time in 2006, when Greta was looking for a donor, she knew that she needed a small miracle because she was also fighting against time!
And then, a complete stranger agreed to undergo the various tests to determine if he could be a plausible donor. After his compatibility had been verified, the man offered himself as a donor.
Consequently, the 16-year-old Greta was able to continue to live and recover completely, thanks to the timely intervention of this generous and compassionate man.
Many years later, when she decided to get married, Greta naturally invited Danny to her wedding and danced a beautiful waltz with him under the eyes of those present - all visibly moved.
A dance to celebrate life - and a special thanks to the man who had saved her life because thanks to him she had been able to realize her dream of continuing to live and to have a normal life.
A story that emphasizes the importance of being a donor - and accepting to undergo the various compatibility tests in order to offer someone the possibility to continue to live.
Moreover, saving another person's life is priceless and their gratitude will repay you forever.
