Serious post time folks..
As most of you are aware we have had it rough at times with Leons condition, but fortunately we, and more importantly Leon, is still with us. Sadly this is not always the outcome. and we have had to watch helplessly as some others have slipped away. At this most difficult of times some families take the decision to allow organs to be donated so that many others may be helped and possibly even given the gift of life.
We have also witnessed the heart wrenching strory of a little boy waiting for a heart transplant. For any parent to have to sit and watch their child slowly fade away and be placed on the transplant list (there's no guarantees in this) spend 8 months or even more in hospital miles from home, separated from your family, waiting for "that" call, all the time your child getting weaker and weaker. Fortunately, thanks to the kindness and courage of another family they received the call and their little one received the gift of a heart, so at least now they have a chance of life.
Demand sadly outstrips supply, but we can all do our bit, it's a no brainer to me, but everyone can make their own decision. But please, think how you would feel in that position, and ask yourself if you would be prepared to receive an organ if needed. then ask yourself if you could be the one that possibly could be the one to provide that organ.
Leave a real legacy when you're gone. Leave the gift of life.
