The word continues to spread!!

Last week, our very fabulous advocate Lisa Muscutt continued to spread the word through our series of talks to various interested parties with a presentation at Hammonds, a leading commercial law firm based in London. This was a really exciting opportunity for us to diversify our talks even further, and Lisa did a sterling job by handing out various leaflets about donor awareness and showing a DVD of herself in the Brompton hospital before her transplant, talking about her struggle with six false alarms and the transformative affect the transplant had had.

Many of the 40 people that attended had tears in their eyes as Lisa talked so movingly about her CF treatments and how without the generosity of a complete stranger she would not be here today.
Our main aim here at LLTGL is to get people to think and talk about organ donation, and although Lisa says that she found the experience a little nerve wracking, we at LLTGL are so proud of her for her courage to talk about her transplant experiences and make people think hard about signing up to the organ donor register.
