Organ Donation Week 2017


So organ donation week started yesterday Monday the 4th September! 
As many of you who follow my blog know I am a trustee for the charity Live Life Give Life! So not only is the week special to me for my own personal reasons but our charity do a lot to be involved! We have  launched our new campaign "I can't live without you" which is based around the story of Paige who talks about her sister kayleigh who sadly died in a skiing accident and saved 3 people's lives! 

To find out more please visit www.livelifegivelife.org.uk 
To see the full video and the campaign! 

So yesterday I started organ donation week bright and early for a interview with BBC Surrey Radio at their studio in Guildford at 7am I feel the interview went well and hope it encouraged people to sign up and speak up to their families and loved ones about their wishes 

This year the theme is about talking to your next of kin! Last year 49% of families refused to donate although their loved ones where signed up because they didn't know what they wanted because they hadn't had the conversation! Imagine the lives they could have saved if only they had had that conversation before the traffic time came.
