There is a shortage of people on the donor list in the uk and thousand of people are waiting for an organ transplant.
I witnessed the devastating death of a young boy who didn't receive a liver. Previously fit and healthy he collapsed at a football match, his bug escalated into sepsis which ravaged his liver.
By Signing up you could save or transform up to 9 lives!
For 14 days his parents and I shared stories of pride and love, we talked about our hopes for the future and sometimes we just sobbed - our boys were balancing precariously on the cusp of life and death.
This poor family had to humbly accept that a liver would not arrive in time. They stood with their son as his life support was switched off and then they came to Spike’s bed, thanked me and told me they would pray for us, they would pray that our son would see his dreams.
I think of this family every day, I can still hear their beautiful farewell chanting.
In 2013 I made a promise to myself that every year I would share our story.
This is my chance to spread the word.
So please SIGN UP TODAY AND GIVE THE GIFT OF LIFE.
