Spreading the Word

Yesterday while John was spending time with his brother who came down from Townsville the Sydney Morning Herald rang John's mobile saying that they had got our details from Donate Australia.

Well they did a phone interview to get the word out about Rani and the serious lack of Organ Donation in Australia.

This morning I awoke to find a link in the comments of my blog that it is in the paper today.

We thought we were going to be told..but I have just rang John wh is heading to Tasmania and he said he has heard nothing...as after he did the phone interview he was told that their was no guarantee that the story would run...

but anyhow here it is...

Good on you John, for getting the word out about organ donation! Keep it up.. and hopefully people will spend a extra 10 mins to fill out the forms from medicare and consider organ donation.

It's very hard to read those statistics, heartbreaking in fact! I'm glad that you guys did the story and I hope that it can help save the heartache for other families. Thinking of you every day!

I too saw the article (someone posted the links over at AussieLayouts). So glad the message about organ donation is getting out. So sad that it couldn't have happened in time to help Rani. I pray that other families don't have to go through what you went through.

So glad that the word is spreading, Mel. I e-mailed 3AW and asked if there was a link to Johns Interview but there was none.

I don't buy the papers but a friend does. I will try and track down the edition.

In a way, I suppose this is helping you wade through your grief..............

Much love,

Jenny.
