He's been waiting more than six years for a organ transplant.
Now Simon Howell, from Burgess Hill, has become the face of a new campaign by the NHS Blood and Transplant seeking more donors.
Despite being seriously ill, Simon allowed the cameras in to film the daily struggle he faces.
Simon, 41, was born with a serious kidney condition, renal dysplasia. He had his first kidney transplant in 2005 thanks to his mum offering to be a living donor.
Unfortunately, in 2009, the kidney failed. Simon was added to the transplant waiting list for a new kidney and has been waiting longer than six years already.
This report by Tom Savvides includes interviews with Simon Howell, Sally Johnson from NHS Blood and Transplant and Carla Gair, who's had a heart transplant.
