What if you were waiting for a transplant?

Nearly 49,000 people in the UK have had to wait for a transplant in the last decade. What if you, or someone you love, was waiting for a transplant, with your life on hold?

Albert 'Albie' Bird has biliary atresia and needs a liver transplant. He has been listed for transplant since May 2015 and suffers internal bleeds that have led to him needing blood transfusions on what is now almost a weekly basis.
