Our Em

If any of you have ever had the chance to hear our Chairman Emily speak about her life then you will know what an inspirational person she is and what an inspirational story she tells.

We at Live Life Then Give Life believe that one method of raising awareness that triumphs above all others is telling a real life story. Emily works constantly and tirelessly to save and improve the lives of people on the transplant waiting list and the way she does this best is by talking (well, are you surprised?) This week she has been on BBC Radio Surrey's breakfast show as part of their life stories section.

Emily's interview has been split into 4 parts with the final part being aired on BBC Surrey tomorrow at 9.40am. The other 3 parts can be heard on IPlayer by following the links below:

Part 1 - 53 Minutes in. - Emily talks about life before transplant, using a wheel chair and trying to hold onto her indpendance while Cystic Fibrosis compromised it.

Part 2 - 1 hour 49 Minutes in. - Emily talks about being given 12months to live, her work for Live Life Then Give Life and life on the transplant waiting list.

Part 3 - 1 hour 49 Minutes in. - Emily talks about life after transplant 4 years on and her future, thanks to her donor.

Well done Emily, you are and continue to be an inspiration to many people and we are so pleased to have you as our Chairman x
