This year I had the great pleasure of listening to a talk from a young boy called Max who received a lifesaving heart transplant in August 2017 aged nine, having been on the waiting list for 8 months. He spoke about the agonising wait for a new heart and shared his heart-warming story and his campaign for an opt-out system for organ donation. Max’s life-saving gift came from a young girl, Keira Ball, who passed away aged 9 years old. Her parents, Joe and Loanna, also shared their story about why they made the selfless decision to agree to donate Keira’s organs after a tragic accident. Keira’s organs helped many people, including Max, and they spoke about the comfort they took from making their decision.
