In March 2009 she was diagnosed with kidney failure of unknown cause. Her husband and brother were both tested as matches but neither was a good match. A 6/6 match was found from a deceased donor and in October 2010 Sejal had her kidney transplant at the Freeman Hospital.
Sejal said: "It's been absolutely life changing. It's amazing what a stranger has done for me by donating their kidney. I can't thank them enough."
