A Living Gift

In each episode of A Living Gift the recipient of the miracle that is a life changing organ transplant tells their story.

In Episode One, we hear from heart transplant recipient, Claire O’Connell.

Micheal Mitchell from Strandhill in Sligo received a double lung transplant. He tells the story of that period in his life and how his family, his strong faith and belief in God were major assets in helping him overcome the medical challenges that he faced.

Padraig Gilligan from Riverstown in Co. Sligo spent many years on dialysis. Of his five siblings, only two proved a match for a kidney transplant. Padraig’s brother, Andrew, donated a kidney which made a dramatic difference to his and his family’s quality of life.
