On 1st April 2016 my 23-year-old sister, Kayleigh, donated three of her organs and saved other people’s lives. She is the reason that I am aware of organ donation and why I want to contribute to raising awareness.
My family and I were really lucky to have been so clear on my sister’s wishes regarding organ donation. It isn’t until you go through the unthinkable that you then realise the true importance of knowing. If we hadn't been aware of my sister’s wishes to donate her organs, the three people she saved might no longer be here. I want to encourage people to join the organ donor register and would love to get people talking openly about it.
