From the Heart: Jeffrey's story

We are launching an exciting new campaign to help save thousands of lives and we want your help. Every day 3 people will die waiting for a transplant, due to the desperate shortage of donor organs.

There are currently ten thousand people waiting for a transplant, and none of them know whether they will get the call in time - life is a lottery on the transplant list and we want to try and change it. So, all this week we'll be looking at the issue and speaking to people like Jeffrey.

Jeffrey was badly ill with kidney disease 3 years ago. He tells Sangeeta that having a transplant changed his life.
