Hi, I'm James. I'm 34 years old and was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of 2. I am married to Becky and have twins, Isobel and Logan, who are two-and-a-half years old. I'm a full-time dad - which I love!
At the beginning of 2017 I was listed for a double lung transplant as my lungs have been severely damaged from the numerous infections due to CF, so I am now waiting and hoping for the Gift of Life. Being on the transplant list is the scariest but most exciting thing ever! To get that call will mean being away from my family and having to endure major surgery - but you can imagine how amazing I will feel knowing that I can have a lot longer with my beautiful wife and babies if I receive my gift from a donor. Organ donation really is a matter of life or death. If I am able to see my children grow up through the kindness and generosity of a donor ... well, that person would truly be a real-life angel for me.
I am passionate about organ donation and raising awareness so that people like me don’t have to worry about that call never coming. I can't wait to get stuck into LLGL; I love all the work they do, encouraging people to talk about organ donation and sign up to the organ donor register.
