Rosie’s Wait and Gift of a new Heart
Imagine that you or one of your family members needed an organ transplant in order to continue living. The majority of us would accept an organ without giving it a second thought but due to a lack of awareness hardly any of us are registered as an organ donor. Even fewer have signed up our families to the register.
As a result, each year the harsh reality for thousands of people in the UK waiting for an organ transplant is that sadly many of them may never get the call telling them that a suitable organ donor has been found. If you wouldn’t think twice about accepting an organ to save a life, you shouldn’t think twice about registering to donate an organ to save a life. Please consider organ donation for you and your family (children can be donors too) and share your decision with loved ones. Register as an organ donor via; www.organdonation.nhs.uk or; 0300 123 23 23
