The beautiful Lisa Muscutt, who finally received a double-lung transplant after an incredible 6 false alarms, has been out and about recently helping us spread the word some more. She represented us at the Harefield Fun day, using her incredible story to promote the organ donor register via a LLTGL stand. She managed to galvanize a couple of friends, dressed in the obligatory fancy dress, to hand out as many leaflets as humanly possible and sell some of our trolley-coins. She was also lucky to meet the great Magdi Yacoub, the surgeon responsible for saving thousands of lives through the Harefield transplant programme.
People are always really interested in the organ donor register as it touches so many lives, from the tragic stories of people waiting for their transplant, to those lives that donation has transformed, and to the very special donors and their families. Having someone like Lisa tell their story helps remind people of the very human and personal side of organ donation, and it's amazing power.
