  • I had a kidney transplant 13 years ago and am currently on the waiting list for a liver transplant due to polycystic disease.
    As I am unable to take park as a competitor is there any other options open to me?

  • Hi.. can’t find the facebook page ?? “” GMKIN “” can you let me know the page details so I can put a link on some Kidney sites I help with and for the Lancashire & South Cumbria KPA ( L&SCKPA.org.uk )

    Cheers

  • Hi my name is Julie Gorton ward manager and nurse in the young adult clinic at Salford Royal, I am trying to enrol as many transplant patients to take part in the British transplant games that are being held in Bolton in August 2014. I have been involved in these games I use to be the Manchester team manager and the great British team nurse so I have the knowledge of how the games are. The British games is the ideal place to meet patients who may have been through the same experience as yourselves, also there is social activities which are very well attended and good fun. The transplant games are also a way of showing the general public how a life saving organ can change your life. Anyone interested in attending these games please get in touch and we will work out a event you can take part in and also try and help fund raise for these games. Thanks Jules.

    • Hi Julie, I’m very interested in taking part in the transplant games. My name is Stewart Jones I’m 38 years old and had my kidney transplant in 2008. I love running and keeping myself fit. I’m going to email you some more info about myself because I’d love to learn more about the games and how to take part.
