Over 2000 people gathered to honour organ donors and their families at the Irish Kidney Association’s Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving today.
The Irish Kidney Association is urging people to talk to their families about becoming an organ donor.
Ahead of the Irish Kidney Association’s Organ Donor Awareness Week, which takes place from today until April 7, Reah and Aaron Higgins from Caher, Co Clare, talk to Carol Byrne about their recent transplant journey.
Next week is the Irish Kidney Association's Organ Donor Awareness Week.
Ben was only six when he died last October, and donated his organs. Sarah was a fit-24-year-old when she went into heart failure and on the transplant list. She and Ben’s family share their stories.
The Irish Kidney Association has told Health Minister James Reilly that the loss of the discretionary medical card is having a “devastating personal economic effect” on the country’s 3,000 transplanted people.
