My story

[p][span=color: #000000;]There is a serious shortage of organ donors in the UK. Approximately 7,000 people are waiting for an organ transplant and on average 3 people die a day in need of an organ. Statistically, you are more likely to need an organ transplant than become a donor but by registering to donate your organs after you die you will help save and transform the lives of up to 9 desperately ill people. For those living with Cystic Fibrosis, you are even more likely to need an organ transplant.[/span][/p] [p][span=color: #000000;]Art Transplant was created by artist Luke Yates after losing his wife, Sam, to Cystic Fibrosis after she waited more than 3 years for a double lung transplant.[/span][/p][p][span=color: #000000;]The funds raised from the sale and/or commissioning of works will be donated to charities who work hard to raise organ donation awareness and support those living with Cystic Fibrosis.[/span][/p][p] Through Virgin Money Giving, donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]

Luke, we absolutely adore our Art Transplant paintings - not only because you are so amazingly talented to produce such beautiful artwork but because of what they stand for and what they aim to achieve...
