My story

[p]On 22/09/19 2pm, I am taking on the challenge of a Wing Walk at Headcorn Airfield, Kent. I am doing it because 'I CAN'.[/p][p]This is to fundraise for Transplant Sport UK, also Kidney Research UK + to celebrate my 25th Kidney Transplant Anniversary-[/p][p]On 29/07/94, a 35yr old motorcyclist sadly lost his life in an accident. He had registered his wish to donate organs after his passing on the NHS Organ Donor Register. More importantly he had told his family of his wishes + they very bravely allowed his wishes to be carried out.[/p][p]At this time, I had been on 4x daily Kidney Dialysis, previously had to resign from employment due to extreme tiredness + was constantly admitted to hospital for varying reasons.[/p][p]His gift of life, ended my daily dialysis + enabled my husband Antony + I to have 2 beautiful girls. I achieved a dream of owning my own horse, + my transplant inspires me to live my life to the full, experiencing + achieving as much as I can.[/p][p]I am now very active + look after my health as this second chance is very precious.[/p][p]I have competed as a member of the Kent Transplant Team in sports such as Table Tennis, 3km Race Walk for many years at The British Transplant Games. This is held annually showing the benefits of organ donation. I have won many medals- in 2014, I won a Gold medal in 3km Race Walk, allowing me to be selected to be part of Team GB+NI and compete at World Transplant Games in Argentina 2015. I was proud to achieve 2 bronze medals- in Table Tennis + 3kn Race Walk.[/p][p] I think of my Donors family almost daily + I hope that if they ever asked for contact, they would appreciate how much it means, what he gave me, enabling them to have some comfort.[/p][p][br][/p]
