After being listed for transplant, Sam courageously decided to share her story in the hope that it would lead to an increase in the number of people who sign up to the NHS Organ Donation Register. Sam wrote regularly about her life and experiences waiting on the transplant list in her popular blog ‘The end of my tether?’ but was also interviewed for local newspapers, radio and both regional and national news. Although Sam’s transplant never came, she tirelessly campaigned for an increase in the number of organ donors. Sam spent her final months trying desperately to encourage more people to sign up to the NHS Organ Donor Register so others would not face the agonising wait she endured.
Sam gave up precious time to campaign for organ donation awareness using all the media outlets available. Her story and character inspired thousands to sign up. When Sam passed away she donated her corneas – giving a stranger their sight back.
