"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."

"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."

"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."

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.
