More than 6,000 people in the UK are facing Christmas on the waiting list for an organ transplant.
It started with a questionnaire...
Frank Dewhurst is one of the oldest living kidney donors.
Adults typically wait 29 days for a new heart, while children wait 70.
1 in 5 people who died on the transplant list is from a black, Asian or minority ethnic background.
Most people couldn’t imagine their life hanging in the balance aged 27 but a little over 18 months ago this was my reality.
In the last three years, 46 children have died on the transplant waiting list.
Three people a day die waiting for a suitable organ to become available in the UK. And why? Because not enough people tell their families they want to donate.
Ensuring family know your wishes is vital.
I am yet to read a piece which mentions the fact that Lauda was lucky to have been able to have a transplant
