15.03.19 – Liver-versary

Ahh! A moment of euphoria seeing myself on TV! I was on ‘The One Show’ last week talking about my experience with organ donation, how great I feel and honoured to have been given a second chance of life. It was also my first liver transplant anniversary last weekend, so I celebrated it as a […]

25.02.19 – My Mind Wonders..

Last weekend was spent at home ‘relaxing’ and recharging for this week. It’s not easy for me to relax, sit down and just stop.

Yesterday I took on a bay by myself with a little help from others. I knew exactly what was happening with […]
