Jason Carpenter had epilepsy most of his life and was 38 years old when passed away after having a seizure. He was on life support for six days and his parents, Una and Michael, knew his chances of survival were slim. They made the difficult decision to donate his organs.
“Jason was a compassionate person. As someone with severe epilepsy he wasn’t able to do the same as others. Being able to do this would have meant so much to him. This wasn’t the hardest decision we’ve had to make; it gave us some joy.”
Seven people were given life saving transplants.
