'It's a very strange feeling to have someone else's lung inside your body,' says Louth woman


Olive Worrell was told she had just 18 months to live unless a lung donor could be found. In 2019, that was made possible through an organ donation and a successful transplant took place in Dublin. Olive describes her diagnosis and why organ donation is one of the most important last wishes to be fulfilled. Individuals who wish to support organ donation are encouraged to Share Their Wishes and keep the reminders of their decision available by carrying the organ donor card, permitting Code 115 to be included on their driver’s licence or having the ‘digital organ donor card’ App on their smartphone. Organ Donor Cards can be requested by visiting the IKA website www.ika.ie/get-a-donor-card or to your phone, phoning the Irish Kidney Association on 01 6205306 or Free text the word DONOR to 50050
