Raising organ donation awareness
My wife, Juliet, was fortunate enough to have a combined kidney and pancreas transplant 7 years ago.
Unfortunately, the kidney has decided that it no longer wants to play ball meaning that she must attend dialysis three times a week, 4 hours a time.
Last time around I wasn’t sure about the idea of donating, but this time it just seems the right thing to do.
Anyway, what are the chances of being a match?….1/100,000 is the answer and guess what, I am a match! Eeek!
I am not telling you this because I want to be hailed a hero, (size medium, if you are looking for a cape) but rather to raise awareness of organ donation.
It’s incredibly easy to do and would mean the world to a family whose relatives are in desperate need of an organ.
This is the link if you want to add yourself to the register – https://www.organdonation.nhs.uk/
If you feel uncomfortable with the idea of donating your organs, which I completely understand, and want to help another way, you can donate via our just giving page http://www.justgiving.com/owner-email/pleasesponsor/Nathan-Fryer1
The operation is happening on Wednesday 17th April 2019 and would love to wake up to the news that either we have raised a sizable amount of money for the South West Thames Renal Unit or that loads of people have signed up to the organ donation register.
