Girl, 8, who died from ‘shock’ brain bleed will save five lives with organ donations

A family mourning their eight-year-old daughter who passed away suddenly have found some comfort in the fact their little girl will eventually save five lives with her organs.

And she has already saved three.

Caireann Gildea, from Point Cook in Melbourne, died suddenly after she suffered a ruptured AVM (arteriovenous malformation) in her brainstem on March 7 2020.

Just the day before she died she had competed in a Little Athletics tournament and had won the 200m race. Her family described her sudden death as a “shock”.

For the one year memorial of her death, her mother Kathy, 41, and father Neal, 42, have remembered her beautiful presence in this world, including that she will save the lives of five strangers.

“We lost someone but (someone else has) gained a better life,” Kathy told
