Location: Monmouth, Wales
Campaign: To encourage others to sign up to be an organ donor

I have cystic fibrosis and recently I needed a lung transplant.

This drastically improved my quality of life – in fact, it changed everything.

All the things I’d previously found a struggle, such as sleeping and walking, suddenly became much easier, and I’ll forever be grateful to the family that made the decision to donate their loved one’s organs.

I now want to show others the huge difference organ donation can make.

Becoming a donor is a decision that could save lives - and that's an incredible gift.
