National Transplant Week

It is National Transplant Week this week - a week where people are urged to think about organ donation. I could blog on for ages about this but there is one main message really. Today, I woke up, cuddled, got ready and sent three very happy and healthy children to school. If it were not for William's wonderful donor and her family, one of those children would be missing from our lives.

The more I meet donor families and also meet people who lost a loved one but didn't donate organs and wish they did, the more it becomes clear that talking about organ donation is as important, if not more so than signing the register. Your loved ones need to know your feelings about it so that your wishes can be known if they have to make such a decision.

This week, think about it, talk about it and sign up here
