West Moreton Health nurse educator Bec Vallee has a rare genetic kidney disorder and is in need of a kidney transplant.
Her story has touched the hearts of her colleagues and the broader community, and you can read it here.
Bec has shared her story to show how organ donation gives recipients a second chance at life. In Bec’s case, a new kidney would allow her to watch her child grow from a toddler.
Kate Robinson, Donation Specialist Nurse at Ipswich Hospital, said organ donation was a rare occurrence.
“It’s something we only see a couple of times a year, if we are lucky, at Ipswich Hospital,” Ms Robinson said. “We would love to increase registrations in the West Moreton region to help Bec and her family, as well as others on the transplant list.”
