"In July 2010 a nurse told me that a heart had become available. It was very surreal, I wasn't afraid; in fact I was overjoyed as I knew this was the only way I was going to survive."

"If you could see Ben and the difference his transplant has made to both his life and ours you would really see what a truly amazing gift this is."

"A couple of weeks after Denise’s passing, I received a letter from the organ donation team informing me that five different lives had been saved from Denise’s organ donation."

What happens once I register?

Once you register, your details will be added to the NHS Organ Donor Register and, if this is your first time registering, you will receive a letter of confirmation. 

The next stage is up to you. It’s time to sit down and have a chat with your family or friends, tell them your decision and that you would like your wishes fulfilled. You can even talk to them about signing the register too.
