The family of a young woman who inspired thousands of people to become organ donors have paid tribute to her life.
Kirstie Tancock from Honiton passed away in the early hours of this morning, aged just 27.
She had cystic fibrosis, but continued to help others and raise awareness while she underwent two double lung transplants.
Kirstie, who was a skilled pole fitness and hoop instructor, was a staunch advocate for organ donation, vowed to raise £2,000 for Harefield Hospital.
Even after being told she had just months to live, Kirstie stayed positive and was always thinking of others.
Posting on Facebook, her family said Kirstie was "one in a million" and meant the world and more too so many people.
