Donating an organ isn't the only way to donate
I found out the incredible, life changing news in October 2017, that I was in the amazing privileged position, to donate one of my kidneys to my Mom.
My brother and I are not a direct match, so we have been on a paired exchange list for the last 4 years. This is where a relative, friend or partner is fit & able to donate a kidney, but is incompatible with the potential recipient & they are matched with another donor & recipient in a similar situation, so that both people in need of a transplant receive a compatible organ.
I'm extremely pleased & over the moon to tell you that our surgeries went ahead in January & everyone involved is recovering well. There are no words to describe how mind-blowing& astounding this is.
I'm making it my mission to raise awareness of living organ donation & the paired exchange scheme that is available in the UK & ROI.
I'm originally from Redditch, UK & have been living in Dublin for the last 7 years. Our operations took place at The QE Hospital, Birmingham. The team there have been out of this world & we can't thank them enough. Beaumont Hospital have also been very supportive & have taken bloods for me on occasion, to save me travelling.
The Big Kidney Quiz
We want to raise as much as possible for The QEH KPA & the IKA, both have supported us & many other families across the UK and ROI & we want to give something back. So we're hosting a Big Kidney Quiz in the UK & ROI.
