Abstract

It is my great pleasure to introduce this comic. Our project originated from an honest conversation with my friend and colleague Prof Chris Murray: how to communicate complex issues surrounding the issue of organ donation? Over the last seven years I have had the honour of being an ambassador for the Organ Donation campaign by telling my son, Andrew’s, story.

Through my role as an Organ Donation ambassador I meet courageous and selfless people. Some are in desperate need of hope, some are in the position to provide hope, and those who, through their professionalism and dedication, transform lives.

Our sincere thanks for the support of the following organisations: University of Dundee; the NHS Blood and Transplant Specialist Nurses in Organ Donation; Dundee Comics Creative Space; Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief, and the Organ Donation Comics team. it is only through their support that this project
came to fruition.

In the following pages we share heartfelt stories and life experiences related to organ donation. By doing so we hope to bring awareness to a wider audience and prompt honest conversations about organ donation.

Finally, I would like thank my sons Andrew and Stuart for warming my heart. Through tears and laughter we present to you… The Gift.
