It’s not only those born with conditions that need organs…

So far in our exploration of seeing who YOU could be helping out with an organ donation, we have discussed conditions acquired at birth. Some people however also develop a disease or illness which causes an organ to fail.

Today we look at a condition called cardiomyopathy. Cardiomyopathy is a condition that is mild in most cases however it can develop into serious heart failure which may result in the need for a heart transplant. The condition means that the heart muscle becomes inflamed and enlarged meaning the heart becomes weak which may leads to heart failure.

If you still need more reason’s to donate, keep reading and find out whom else needs your organs!
