A Ballymena mum whose youngest son needs a kidney and liver transplant is urging local people to help save lives by registering as an organ donor.

Sarah Lamont, whose 17-month-old son, Joe, was born with Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease (ARPKD) will fly out with him to Birmingham next month for an assessment which, she hopes, will place him on the list for the organs he so desperately needs.

Joe had both his kidneys removed when he was just weeks old and having been diagnosed last August with the serious liver disease Congenital Heptatic Fibrosis now needs a rare dual organ transplant. Full story in this week’s Ballymena Times.
