Naked Couples With Transplant Scars Pose For Organ Donor Register Campaign (PICTURES, VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Couples have posed naked, revealing their transplant scars, for a charity campaign urging people to become organ donors.

The campaign Let Love Live On has been launched to coincide with Valentine's Day.

The project, run by charity Live Life Then Give Life, aims to highlight how a donor can transform another person's life.

Accompanying the images are a series of videos shot by renowned photographer Rankin, where couples talk through their stories.

Kate and Chris Ball, from Edinburgh, met after Kate had a heart transplant at 19.

"It turns out I had a condition called dilated cardiomyopathy, which is a thickening of the heart muscle," she explains. "I only had to wait eight days for a transplant, so I was very lucky."

She adds: "There's nothing my transplant stops me doing at all. I work full time, travel and do sport."

As the charity's website states:

Each year 1000 people in the UK die waiting for an organ donation. Despite overwhelming support for organ donation in the UK (97% of residents), only a quarter of people have signed up to the Organ Donor Register. Even then, families can veto their final wishes even if they are registered. This happens in 41% of cases where wishes have not been discussed.
