Mike's story

The gift you give WILL change or save a life

If you ever have a doubt about organ donation then please read my story.

I was sick for a year before eventually being diagnosed with chronic renal failure.

My first thoughts were - 'no way, I am only 25 and stay fit by playing sports, they must have it wrong' - but they were right.

We went through all the tests and I spent almost a year getting healthy enough to receive a kidney transplant from my mother - God bless her.

It has now been over 15 years and I am lucky enough to have a beautiful family of my own and I live life to the fullest. The gift you give WILL change or save a life and in turn can fulfil other people's lives also. Please register to donate today.

Mike.
