Organ Donation Week

Organ Donation Week is a celebration of organ donation across the UK, and this year's event is a great opportunity for donor families, transplant patients, the wider NHS and organisations to reinforce the importance of organ donation.

In Dorset alone, 55 people are waiting for that call that may save their life.

Over 6,000 people at any given time in the UK are on the transplant waiting list.

Keep 106 has been speaking with Jon Fox who is a donor recipient. Jon has a genetic disease which prevented his liver from working effectively.
