A few days ago we got some fantastic news we'd been waiting and hoping for; one of our Fabvocates, Holly Shaw had been called for transplant! The operation took place overnight and all went well. YAY!
It's very early days, but so far so good. The kidney is not yet working but apparently that is not unusual, so now it's a question of "wait and see" and hope that little kidney wakes up and starts working.
Holly is already sounding like her usual positive self but is feeling pretty sore and could do with some lovely wishes from our supporters. You can keep up to date with Holly and how she is doing on her blog.
Come on Holly - we can't wait to have you back and are thrilled for you!
Live Life Then Give Life was created to raise awareness of organ donation and the chronic lack of organ donors in the UK. We aim to encourage people to think and talk about organ donation.
LLTGL helps give those affected by transplant a voice within the media, educates the public and supports those in need of a vital transplant, which due to the terrible shortage of donors in the UK may never come.
