I’m only here because of a miracle of modern life. At the beginning of 2011, following catastrophic liver failure, I was in a coma with only days to live, when I received a donor organ.
For this gift of life I am extremely grateful, not only to the donor and his family, but also to a wonderful team of doctors nurses and support staff at Melbourne’s Austin Hospital Liver Transplant Unit. My new liver has allowed me to continue working on my photographic projects and hopefully contribute to our society for many years to come.
I urge anyone who has no objections to organ donation, to consider registering at Donate Life. And once you have registered, don’t forget to tell your family and friends of your intentions.
