Pip's gift

By Claire

I lost my little sister, Phillipa (Pip) a few years ago. Pip was killed in a farm accident - —she was just 19.

Pip and I had registered to become organ donors a few years earlier. By doing this we made a terribly devastating time a little bit easier for my parents.

Knowing that Pip had helped change or save the lives of at least three people made the unimaginable grief easier to bear.

Pip was a gentle soul and she loved helping others.

Thankfully, one of the recipients from Pip's donation contacted my mother and this really helped us all with the healing process.

Please discuss organ donation with your loved ones - —you never know what the future may bring.
