The mother and sister of Emilio Martinez, an organ donor who passed away in a construction accident on Maui in 2007, are traveling from Neuquen, Argentina for a first-time meeting with the recipient of their son and brother’s transplanted liver.

He passed away on February 17, 2007 giving Aresio Domingo, a local carpenter, a second chance at life.
