This week Sunday July 23rd to Sunday 30th July is all about spreading awareness and embracing the gift of life through organ donation.
World Transplant Games Medalist and HHFC Club member Wayne Brody is living proof that something good has come from a tragedy.
It's incredible how a single act of kindness can transform someone's life and leave a lasting legacy. Let's come together as a community and make a difference!
Did you know that a single organ donor can save up to 8 lives? 🫁 And not just organs – tissues like corneas, bones, and skin can improve the lives of countless others.
Your decision to become an organ donor can be a beacon of hope for those who are waiting for a second chance at life.
Wayne's story of surviving sudden heart failure and undergoing a life-saving heart transplant is incredible. After 35 years as a mechanic, he suffered heart damage requiring 10 weeks in hospital and a left-ventricle assist device.
After 3 anxious months waiting for a donor heart, he finally received the gift of life. Wayne's courage through this trauma, and gratitude for his donor and medical teams, is humbling.
He encourages all to register as organ donors and listen to your body's signals. With ongoing care and rehab, he's making the most of his second chance at life.
Wayne's journey highlights the fragility of life and importance of cherishing each day.
Wishing him continued strength.
