The family of a young woman who inspired thousands of people to become organ donors have paid tribute to her life.

Even after being told she had just months to live, Kirstie stayed positive and was always thinking of others.

She even planned her own funeral.

Posting on Facebook, her family said Kirstie was "one in a million" and meant the world and more too so many people.
