Synopsis

Speaker: Fiona Loud.

45 years ago, a time when neither dialysis nor transplantation was widely available, Mrs Elizabeth Ward, the mother of a young kidney patient, set out to revolutionise quality of life for people with kidney failure. She was a fearless pioneer who initiated the first organ donor card, created the first holiday dialysis units and much more. The story of a unique charity is told by someone whose own life has been improved immeasurably through a kidney transplant.
