I received a double lung transplant in 2009 due to cystic fibrosis. I went on to be a successful hair and make-up artist and my work has been featured regularly in advertisements, magazines and photoshoots. I am fortunate enough to have travelled all over the world since receiving my transplant, including a three-month tour around Europe with my partner and our dog!
Always looking for ways to raise awareness of organ donation and the work done by LLGL, I have run numerous 10k events and even walked up Ben Nevis.
Having celebrated my 30th in 2013, surrounded by family and friends, I will be eternally grateful to my donor and their family for making it possible for me to experience my second chance at life.
