Campaign: To encourage young people to sign the organ donation register

I'm campaigning to try and get young people to sign the organ donor register.

 

I became passionate about this topic when my aunt developed polycystic kidney disease and was given a kidney by her brother. 

 

At the time of her transplant I did some research into the numbers of people signing up and discovered that while statistically lots of people support the idea of organ donation in Northern Ireland, in reality not many people have signed up to actually donate.

 

I want to encourage people to actually sign up - especially young people who maybe don’t realise that they can sign up or tell their parents they would like to donate.

Eoin Kenny helped me with this Fix. 

Margaret McChrystal, Faustina Starrett, Leo Murphy and Damien Power from North West Regional College supported me with this Fix.
