Voice 1: Many people suffer from diseases of the kidneys, liver and heart. When these organs fail, people's lives are at risk. A transplant operation can save the life of such a person. Doctors remove the infected organ. And they put a healthy organ in its place. The healthy organ comes from a donor like Richard. Richard was able to give his heart, pancreas, kidneys, liver and eyes. Today, several people are alive and well because of his donation.
Voice 2: But sadly this is not the case for everyone. Donated organs are very hard to get. Hearts are especially difficult. The problem is that the new heart has to come from the right donor. It has to come from a healthy person who has died, maybe in an accident. Their brain is dead - there is no chance of them recovering. But a machine keeps their heart beating. And the donor organ has to be very similar to the patient's old heart. If it is not, the body will reject it as something foreign.
