Today marks one month to go until Wales will become the first country in the UK to introduce a new opt-out system for organ and tissue donation.

Kayleigh Old, from Cardiff, had a life-saving lung transplant in June, and is hoping that the new legislation will mean a shorter wait for donors.

She was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at just 2 months old, and she's struggled to breathe her whole life.

Watch Sarah Powell's interview with Kayleigh here:

I used to have to be on oxygen 24 hours a day and overnight. I couldn't do anything without wearing an oxygen mask. I was very dependent on my parents, they'd have to help me shower, dress, make meals. Little things like putting my socks and shoes on I'd have to have help with... But now... I'm so much better. I can breathe, and I can enjoy time with my family and friends. I'm getting back into work, and things are just a lot easier. Even if I'm having a bad day, things are just so much easier than before.

Next month Wales will become the first country in the UK to introduce a new opt-out system for organ donation.

That gives each person three choices:

  • Opt in - join the donor register

  • Opt out - you're not willing to donate your organs

  • Do nothing - it's then presumed you're happy to donate
