On the 11th of May of 2012, Carlos Martins broke the great news that a match for his son was found! He broke the great news both on the official
Facebook page and website of Gustavo’s cause. Here is what he wrote in Portuguese, which I will translate in English:
is a day with lots of joy.
great gratitude, commotion and satisfaction that we announce, after a long and exasperating period of wait, a donor was found fully compatible with Gustavo.
all who were concerned, that lost hours of your time, that did kilometres and were
subjected to wait in line, that said it was a present, that shared our pain and
joined our movement to help Gustavo, our many thanks.
given a very important step to the healing of Gustavo.
also, in the deep of our heart, for this wave of solidarity to hold and that many
more lives are saved.
