Give Your Heart this Valentine's Day

Student Stacie Pridden is one of 265 people in the UK in need of a new heart, she is encouraging people in the UK to become organ donors this Valentine's.

Stacie suffers from a rare heart condition called Pulmonary Hypertension and has been waiting for a heart transplant for nearly three years, which is the life expectancy she was given when she was diagnosed.

Stacie, along with Heart Transplants UK have launched a new campaign called ‘Give Your Heart This Valentines Day’, that aims to increase the number of people on the organ donor registry. Shockingly while 9 out of 10 people in the UK support organ donation, only 3 out of 10 are registered.
