9th Feb – If you can and you want to make a difference…you could save a life

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

As we drove the 110 miles from Barnstaple to Frenchay neurological unit in Bristol, we discussed the possibility of Reuben not being alive when we got there… ever the planner I broached the subject of organ donation with Mike. Reuben had been airlifted and whilst we sped up the motorway they were getting him ready for surgery. We agreed that if he were to lose his life we would donate his organs and he would save at least 7 other children’s lives. This was to be my lifeline….
Kirsty got in touch with me a few weeks ago, her cousin was looking for a healthy heart for a transplant. He didn’t get one in time, but she is still campaigning for organ donation.
Last week, I registered.
We couldn’t donate Reuben’s organs because he had cancer. I was devastated… why? I didn’t want his little life to be in vain…… And then Reuben’s Retreat was born….
If it’s something you have thought about doing and never got around to it.. here’s the LINK… your life or a loved ones could be turned on its head in an instant.. just like ours… If you can and you want to make a difference…. you could save a life…. xxxx Mummy xxxx
