Our Jess.

It is with great sadness that we have to inform you of the death of Jessica Wales only weeks after receiving the double lung transplant that she had waited for over four years to receive.

During this period, she showed great courage and determination, inspiring people across the country through her relentless campaigning and upbeat attitude. Jess was not only a valued Live Life then Give Life Advocate but also a great friend to many and we offer her family our sincere condolences at this sad time.

We will continue to campaign for all those who wait for an organ transplant and, whilst not every outcome will be what we would wish, we hope that one day all those who need a transplant will get it when they are fittest and it is most likely to have a good long-term outcome.

We will be releasing an official statement in due course and request that the privacy of Jess’s family is respected at this time.
