Access London Supports National Transplant Week 2011

Welcome back to Access London everyone and once again, thank you all for your continued support for disability access and awareness in the capital.

Our posts today and Wednesday will differ a little from our usual ones - we are here to support the UK's National Transplant Week 2011 which is running from 4th July - 10th July.

There are currently over 7,500 people in the UK waiting for a transplant. 96% of us would take an organ if we needed one but only 29% of the population are on the Organ Donor Register.

Access London supports all types of disability access needs in London and many of those waiting on the transplant list require the support of disability access. More importantly though, they need your help by SIGNING UP TO THE ORGAN DONAR LIST. Please watch the video below that was recorded by and features a friend of mine, Victoria Tremlett, who suffers from Cystic Fibrosis and has been on the waiting list for a double lung transplant for four years now. Please, listen to her story....

I hope many of you found Tor's story as inspiring as I do. Tor is one of the bravest and sweetest people I know and she deserves the chance to have a life that she can live.

Tor is one of thousands of people on the transplant list, every one with their own story to tell, just like Tor's.

Please, if there is one thing that you do today, please sign up to be a donar and help give hope to thousands of people in this country.

The final part of our National Transplant Week posts will be live soon and will feature an interview with Tor.

Please go to the National Transplant Week website to SIGN UP TODAY
