Donating an organ isn't the only way to donate
Stacey Kavanagh and her Mom about to go in for a Kidney Transplant




Stacey has decided to support the Q.E.H.K.P.A. and the Irish Kidney Association with fundraising and Quiiz Nights.

I found out the incredible, life changing news in October 2017, that I was in the amazing privileged position, to donate one of my kidneys to my Mom.

My brother and I are not a direct match, so we have been on a paired exchange list for the last 4 years. This is where a relative, friend or partner is fit & able to donate a kidney, but is incompatible with the potential recipient & they are matched with another donor & recipient in a similar situation, so that both people in need of a transplant receive a compatible organ.

I'm extremely pleased & over the moon to tell you that our surgeries went ahead in January & everyone involved is recovering well. There are no words to describe how mind-blowing& astounding this is.

I'm making it my mission to raise awareness of living organ donation & the paired exchange scheme that is available in the UK & ROI.

I'm originally from Redditch, UK & have been living in Dublin for the last 7 years. Our operations took place at The QE Hospital, Birmingham. The team there have been out of this world & we can't thank them enough. Beaumont Hospital have also been very supportive & have taken bloods for me on occasion, to save me travelling.

About Emma Fiona Fearon, Ant McGreevy, Emma Littleford- None of us have ever ran this far before, and we are taking on the challenge of
The Birmingham's full International Marathon on 15th October.

We signed up a year ago and I know we have all at some point doubted that we would actually go through with it.
Our group has been affected by injury and illness but that has not stopped us!
Ant has even completed the 100 mile velo cycle and got married in the month building up to this!
Thanks to lots of hard work and a really great group of runners (especially Dors who we could not do without!).
We are now in a position to say we are running a marathon in 2 weeks!
We are raising money for 2 charities that really mean a lot to all 3 of us -

Queen Elizabeth hospital kidney unit have given amazing support to our close friends and family for many years.
We are also running for Birmingham City Mission who work with the homeless/disadvantaged in Birmingham and were supported with passion and purpose by the late David Jefferies.

We hope that our own passion and adrenaline on the day will help us through,
and also your kind sponsorship so please give what you can to help us towards our goal!
