National Transplant Week 4th-12th July 2010

Posted Jul 06 2010 12:00am
Feeling pretty crappy this eve as I struggle with some really bad chest pain. It hasn't subsided at all and its getting to me now. Its not great but you know what, I can deal with it because I know how much worse I have felt in my lifetime of medical trauma. I also know that I am a lucky chick, I am here because my benevolent donor made that choice to help save lives when theirs would end. I am so so thankful. My mate Jac has done a brilliant Q and A on her blog this week re: misconceptions and concerns regarding organ donation, so please do check it out.

This week I have decided to do two things in aid of National Transplant Week 2010.

First is an open forum where any question can be asked which I will attempt to answer as truthfully as I can. I am especially reaching out to those unsure about organ donation and the transplant journey. Please feel free to post your questions on the forum on the upper tab!!

Second is a link to a fun wordsearch I have created just to help us to think about the concepts involved with transplantation. Feel free to print it off and complete if you get the time? You never know, you might start it on your train journey to work and someone will have a peek over your shoulder and think about signing up!
