Just a quick update from T, thanks to you guys...
You are right to assume that some people have signed up as a direct result of you mentioning Save5 on the various forums. A huge, huge thank you to you. Just to let you know that the figure this morning at breakfast was 2,017 and now it is 2,027!!! Thank you.
If you have previously signed up to the donor register, you may want to check your details. The system doesn't work effectively if you have changed your name, married or moved address. Please sign up, re-register and/or check your details. So many people mean to sign up but never get round to it, and sadly good intentions aren't an adequate replacement for a heart or liver. Please consider this a gentle reminder - literally 5 minutes of your time has the potential to save 5 lives!
Spread the word if you can, i'd love to help as much as I can

Yep, when I got my first license I went ahead and ticked all bits, everyone was saying "do you know what that is, don't you want to think about it". Bemused me. Even worse I felt was renewing my license at the Post Office and she was shocked that I had ticked them all. Again she checked with me that I had meant to do that & just said to her that I wasn't gonna need them. She chuckled and said well done.
No point driving a donorcycle and not signing up

Exactly tech monkey. But hey ho, not everybody thinks the same. Fair enough to that I say. Each to there own. But it's definitely worth considering. I've been given an extra 7+ years with my mum. Although the disease has recently started attacker her new liver. No chance of retransplant this time due to age and other underlying issues. But hey - it was an extra 7 years
If any of you signed up a while back, on your driving licence for example, it might be worth registering on the site again. The transition to electronic documentation wasn't great. Plus, if you have moved house or got married/changed your name, your details will need updating!
Ta very much all of you
I have no connection to this cause other than being directly affected by it and subsequently meeting T and hearing about what she is trying to achieve.

Good work guys, thanks if you put your name forward for organ donation. What better gift to leave when you go, the gift of life

I'm already signed up as an organ donor and they won't have my blood since a thyroid problem (I'm also border-line anaemic), but I'll pass the link on
