“Every day is a struggle and it gets harder just to survive each day. Statistically I shouldn’t even be alive now. Everyday I face the possibility my chance at life may never come and am constantly scared about my uncertain future. At 24 I shouldn’t have to worry about living to 25.”
Our ambassador Tor has now been waiting for a lung transplant for exactly 4 years today. She was only given 2 years left to live when listed, so she is well and truly on borrowed time.
7 months on and nothing has changed, Tor is still waiting, still holding on, still fighting to live, hoping for that phone call that will change her life. Tor lives with the knowledge that half the people waiting for a lung transplant will die.
During this week, National Transplant Week, we have joined together with NHSBT to spread Tor's plea in the hope that more people sign the organ donor register and give Tor a chance.
Tor says “Without a transplant there is no hope for me. Please watch my plea and pass it on to spread the message far and wide. You can do something today and save lives of people waiting each day for their lives to start.”
