A very important decision


I read Abbe's very sad story about the passing of a work colleagues' husband over the weekend. It immediately made me think about subject of organ donation.

Today Abbe has written another heartfelt post.  During such a sad time, his family have given the ultimate gift and decided to donate his organs.

Please discuss organ donation with your loved ones, and sign up on the national register. You just never know when you or one of your loved ones may need the generousity of that ultimate gift.

Thankyou Abbe for letting me share your story...

I am so with you. Take it all I say, we discuss this a lot in my family- that makes us sound so jolly- but we are all clear don't leave me laying in a coma for years etc. Nice one Cam. x

I totally agree. It must so hard to consider this immediately after someone has died and yet the decision has such huge ramifications for another person, another family. I long ago decided to be an organ donor ... it feels like the last gift I get to give someone.
