Hi, I'm Sam. 

I'm 26 years old and I have Cystic Fibrosis.  I have been on the transplant list since 4th December 2014 - with no calls.  I did briefly suspend myself from the list as nerves got the better of me and I was petrified!  But I'm in a better place now and can't wait for the day my life changes so that I can get back to how things were a few years ago before I became ill so frequently.  I have two dogs who are my absolute world and who keep me going through the tough days.  I can't wait for the day I'm able to take them on long walks and runs.

I am passionate about raising awareness for organ donation as I have lost far too many friends who were awaiting their all-important transplants.  I have also seen what an amazing difference it can make to those who have received their organs.
