As per reports, it has been revealed that a young adult from Edinburgh might have to leave his college as he is going to donate one of his two kidneys to his mother. Daniel Autumn said that his mother is his best friend and there is no second option about the fact that he is going to give second chance to his mother to be with him.
Daniel has to pay £1,800 college fee, which he used to earn from his summer job. But that would not be possible right now, as his surgery will not allow him to work. He has asked the college authorities, but they said that they cannot do much in this as it is not in their policies.
A Heriot-Watt spokeswoman said that they will have a word with Daniel and will try to sort out his problem. Daniel, who is a second-year psychology student at Edinburgh’s Heriot-Watt University, was of the view that the transplant test will continue and not much time has left for the surgery.
In such scenario, it is very difficult for him to arrange such a hefty amount to pay for the tuition fee. Daniel said that it will take him 12 weeks to recuperate and then also he would not be able to work.
Daniel’s mother, who has to undergo hours of dialysis three times a week, said that it is quite a nice feeling that his son thinks so much, but she does not want that her son should leave his education.
A spokeswoman from Heriot-Watt University said, “We would strongly recommend, as previously advised, that Daniel applies to the student hardship fund on the basis of his current circumstances. The university will work with him to see what steps can be taken to resolve his situation”.
