'Wales leading UK on organ transplant consent'

A new advertising campaign has been launched aimed at raising awareness of the changes to the law over organ donation later this year.

Wales will become the first UK nation to introduce soft opt-out legislation on organ donation on 1 December.

Kayleigh Old, from Cardiff, who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when she was two months old, is on a waiting list for a lung transplant.

She explained more about her condition to Kayleigh Thomas on BBC Radio Wales and said that she hoped the new law would mean more people get the transplants they need to improve and prolong lives.

"As soon as that call comes I can start living my life again," she said.
