I met Max when I was 16 and we instantly hit it off. When I was 18 we spent a whole Summer together where we formed our friendship fully and from there until I moved to Cardiff we spent every weekend together with mass amounts of partying and mischief.
I knew Max had a liver problem called 'PSC' which has alot of other 'side-effects' if you will making her ill often. I'm not even going to pretend I knew what it was or what it entailed. (you can find out more info on it HERE) up until recently. I won't go into detail but basically Maxine now is on the transplant waiting list for a new liver which will save her life and also change her whole life completely - this is how I learn't about the importance of donating really is.
Max now has her own blog where you can read all about her journey with PSC and the road to getting a new liver - Click Here To Read Maxine's Blog!
The info-graphic below explains about the facts and figures of organ donation and how important it is to sign up and save lives. I don't mean to sound preachy however if you would gladly take an organ to save your life then why would you not want to give back?
Please sign up!

Also Maxines boyfriend Josh is running the London Marathon for PSC Support, the liver disease is poorly understood so all money raised will go into funding for more research and support for the disease - to donate just CLICK HERE :)
Hope you are having a great day!
