Transplant recipient on getting cancer from donor kidney

Duration: 01:00

Robert Law speaks about the kidney transplant which has left him fighting cancer.

The kidney was taken from a woman who had a rare form of blood cancer which was then passed on to Mr Law following the transplant in November 2010.

He expresses his concern and disbelief that an operation which was intended to save his life has further endangered it by passing on a potentially terminal illness.
