Note the 'For now' part of the original statement.
So the programme on ITV1 is brilliant. Insightful and honest.
But it’s a kick in the stomach now. We’re about to see someone who’s son died waiting. And I don’t know how I’m going to watch this. I have to though. You can’t ignore things that are going on around you just because they don’t affect you at that very moment. People die waiting, I could die waiting. That’s the fact of the matter, and there’s nothing any of us can do about it, other than sign up to do our bit.
Did you know..?
You are more likely to need a transplant than to become a donor.
Although 90% of the population support organ donation, only 28% are on the organ donor register.
Over 8000 people are currently waiting for a transplant.
Less than 3000 transplants are carried out each year.
Last year, over 1000 people died whilst waiting for a transplant.
