National Transplant Week...

This week is National Transplant Week... (5th July - 12th July)

Do something this week...If you haven't done so already, please please please think about Organ Donation, talk about it with your loved ones and if you feel you want to leave a legacy of life for others after your death please Sign the Organ Donor Register. Raise awareness... Blog about it, tweet it or change your Facebook status... anything to get the word out there!

If you have any questions about Organ Donation or want to know more you will be sure to find the answers here.

My life has completely transformed because someone out there did that exact same thing and their family agreed to Organ Donation, many of my friends lives have been saved due to transplantation, (see my blog roll). But for many their time will run out and they won't get that life changing call and the transplant they so desperately need.

8000 people are on the waiting list for a transplant, people like Jessica Wales and Victoria Tremlett for them Organ Donation is a matter of life and death, transplants save lives... however 1000 people will die, equivalent to 3 people a day because of the massive shortage of donors. Together we can save lives - please don't let Jess or Victoria become one of the statistics.

Sign the Organ Donor Register: Thank you x
