USING organs to research different conditions can be of great benefit to the medical world.
That’s why Susan Rawlings, 65, and her sons Russell and Michael, agreed to donate their husband and father’s organs to NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT).
Mrs Rawlings, of Second Avenue, Farlington, said: ‘John died in January this year from pneumonia.
‘I spoke to my sons and we agreed we would like all his organs, except his eyes, to be donated.
‘Not everyone’s life has to be short, and if John’s donation can help then that’s a very positive move.’
Sally Johnson, director of organ donation and transplantation at NHSBT, said: ‘We were overwhelmed by the pride and experiences shared by the hundreds of families who accepted the award on their loved one’s behalf.’
