Emma's story

Emma received a life-saving heart transplant at the age of 12.

At the age of 12 Emma’s heart failed. A heart transplant saved her life.

She was encouraged to get into sport after her transplant and now regularly competes for Team GB at the World Transplant Games, excelling in athletics.  

I was put on life support for 9 days in the hope that my heart would recover.

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 like Emma's.

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.
