Heart transplant patient feels there is 'nothing' to hold onto in life, as she now needs new kidneys

A heart transplant patient, from Widnes, says there is "nothing" to hold onto in life after discovering she needs another transplant.

Jade Carr became a world-beating athlete after getting a new heart at age 3. Now, at age 21, she is on dialysis after anti-rejection drugs damaged her kidneys.

She is among 854 people, across the North West, waiting for donor organs to be found.
