William's story

William donated heart valves to help four babies

70-year-old William died with his family at his bedside after an emergency scan revealed a bleed on his brain.

Although he had not recorded an organ donation decision, William's family felt he would have wanted to help others. 

William donated both his kidneys, his corneas and his heart valves. His heart valves were able to help four babies. 

I am so pleased that we agreed to donate. Organ donation has bought so much comfort to us, and I am full of incredible pride for my wonderful dad.

Every day across the UK, someone dies waiting for an organ transplant.

The law around organ donation in England has changed to help more people pass on more organs to save and improve more lives.

You still have a choice if you want to be an organ donor when you die.

Whatever you decide, make sure you let your family and friends know.
