I first became aware of the concept of organ donation and transplants as a child when my elder cousin, Jamie, underwent two liver transplants. Seeing him lead a happy and healthy life now made it clear how vital organ donors are and made me passionate in my belief that everyone in need should get that chance. Being a student nurse has just reinforced this further.
I first became involved with Live Life Give Life when I decided to run the Great North Run for them, in addition to holding bake sales and talks to raise even more money. Whilst preparing for my second LLGL run I was approached to become an advocate and have enjoyed planning talks and events with them.
