Family Of Scarborough Girl Calls For More Organ Donors

Family Of Scarborough Girl Calls For More Organ Donors

Published by Karen Liu at 7:01am 8th September 2019.

There is calls for more people on the Yorkshire Coast to be organ donors. 

The family of a Scarborough girl with a rare heart disease are raising awareness about the issue.

Thalia-Beau Wright, 4, has restrictive cardiomyopathy, an incurable disease which requires a heart transplant. 

Her grandmother, Christine Johnson, said:

"Heartbreakingly, tragedies do happen everyday and unfortunately those organs are not being donated as much as they could be.

Organ donation really does give light in a tragedy.

It can strike anyone at anytime.

Thalia to look at, you wouldn't know that there's anything wrong with her; we're very lucky that it was picked up.

So we just want to educate people and also inspire them to sign up to be an organ donor."
