My brother Danny

By David

In February my brother Danny passed away at Cairns. He went into a diabetic coma a few days earlier.

I can remember one day I asked him about organ donation should anything ever happen to him.

His answer was, "Well if they can find anything useful, they're welcome to it."

When Danny passed away I contacted the organ donation coordinator at the Cairns hospital to arrange for the donation. The lady who I spoke to was so caring towards me and explained all the procedures involved.

Danny's donation has changed or saved five people's lives so my Brother Danny lives on.

I know when it's my turn to depart this life I also want the chance to save or improve someone else's life, so I carry a Australian Organ Donor Card with me at all times.
