Karen and Mark’s story
Karen was able to support her husband's decision to be an organ donor, after he died suddenly.
"Mark was my life for 31 years and he was my passion" says Karen.
She agreed to support her husband's decision to be an organ donor after he died suddenly from a spontaneous, catastrophic brain bleed.
Karen and Mark had discussed organ donation several times before, so she knew what he wanted.
Mark went on to help eight people by donating his heart, liver, kidneys, lungs, pancreas, corneas and tissue.
It’s just an amazing feeling to think that my decision, because I knew what he wanted and I’ve honoured his wishes, has gone on to help all those people.
