A Christmas thank you from Kevin

Share

Inverness resident Kevin Lowe had a kidney transplant in 2007. However, when his body started to reject it seven years later he needed blood transfusions to keep him alive until he could receive a new second kidney.

Kevin says, 'To the donors whose blood products I’ve received, thank you for giving me this chance.'

'I’m now back to being the active person that I enjoy being.  I can enjoy going out for long walks with my wife Tracey and our dog Hamish and help my neighbours with their gardening projects.'

If you can do one thing for someone this Christmas, book an appointment to give blood. Kevin Lowe

'It’s all because blood donors were willing to put aside some time and think about others by going along to give a pint of their blood.  Life is so hectic these days but I’d say one thing to anyone who hasn’t given blood before or anyone who hasn’t been along in a while.  If you can do one thing for someone this Christmas, book an appointment to give blood.'

'Blood donors are amazing individuals.  It’s because of them that I can look forward to celebrating more birthdays and look forward to enjoying life.'
