Parents of Jemima Layzell, who died unexpectedly of a brain aneurysm, require other families to consider organ donation

A 13 -year-old girl who died accidentally of a brain aneurysm has had her organs transplanted to eight people – the largest number in its own history of the organ gift service.

Jemima Layzell was ” lovely- cunning, entertaining, compassionate and artistic”, said her mother, Sophy Layzell, 43, a drama teacher from Horton in Somerset. Just a couple of weeks before her abrupt collapse in March 2012, the family had a dialogue about organ gift because their own families friend had died in a car gate-crash.

” They were on the registry but their organs couldn’t be donated because of the circumstances of their fatality ,” said Sophy.” Jemima had never heard of organ subscription before and met it a little bit unsettling, but totally understood the importance of ensuring that it .”

Her parents saw their own decisions hard, but are glad they established it. Jemima’s heart, tiny bowel, and pancreas were transplanted into three parties. Two parties received her kidneys. Her liver was separated and transplanted into another two parties, while her lungs were transplanted into one patient.

The eight recipients included five children, who came from all over England.

Jemima collapsed during the preparations for her mother’s 38 th birthday party and was killed in hospital four weeks later. A mentality aneurysm, rare in a child, is a swelling in an route wall and there are no evidences unless it severs. When it erupts, it effects a hemorrhage in the brain which can kill or lawsuit persistent impair.

Her mothers set up the Jemima Layzell Trustin her remembrance to assistant survivors.” If Jemima had survived, the ruptured aneurysm would have severely affected her communication and the right side of their own bodies ,” “theyre saying” on the rely website.

Her parents went through robes and controls, looking for clues as to why she had died really young. They didn’t find them, but they did discover about 20 journals and notebooks “shes been” remaining since she was four years old. These they have was transformed into a journal, called The Draft, sales of which will raise funds for the charity.

They tell the story of her brief life.

Dear Diary

It is day like this when I sit and amazement’ where’s my Romeo? What happened to my Prince Charming ?’ But then I stop and think, do I certainly deserve him?
… I want to leap out of couch, draw back the draperies and gaze out into the nighttime.
To lean out the window, sing for my true love, the adoration I do not yet
possess and perhaps never will. If merely I weren’t so afraid .

Some people say that God can’t exist because if he did he would help all the poor people in the world.
I object to that. I feel their despair but WE have to help them. They
are there because we did this to them. They are there because we have a
wrong to right. They are there to stop us from turning into complete
monsters before it’s too late . One extract even foretells the future 😛 TAGEND

Anyway I need to write what I believe and feel. Not all that you see
here actually’ happened’ but it’s still very real to me. I don’t care if
I let my imagination run away with me!
Plenty of brilliant masters and columnists were mad! In reality it built their work most interesting! Even if they did cut their ears off, commit suicide, guided round doing crazy material etc etc.
Beings still adoration them and their work just the same. And I want to be loved very. I virtually feel as though I will never live long enough to become an author, to be married and found a family .

Her mother, her father-god, Harvey, 49, the manager of a building corporation, and her sister, Amelia, aged 17, guide the Jemima LayzellTrust, which likewise promotes organ subscription. They are proud that Jemima’s organs facilitated eight other lives continue.

” Shortly after Jemima croaked, we watched a program about children awaiting nerve grafts and being fitted with Berlin Hearts in Great Ormond Street hospital ,” said her mother.” It validated for us that saying’ no’ would have been repudiating eight other beings the chance for life, especially over Jemima’s heart, which Harvey had felt unpleasant about donating at the time.

” We feel it’s very important for families to talk about organ donation. Every parent’s instinct is to say no, as the administration is programmed to protect most children. It’s only with prior knowledge of Jemima’s agreement that we were able to say yes .”

NHS Blood and Transplant is hoping Jemima’s story will encourage more families to have the critical dialogue, because a lack of donated organs is expensing hundreds of lives each year, it says.

Last year, 457 beings croaked waiting for a transplant, including 14 children. There are 6,414 beings on the transplant waiting list including 176 children.

Anthony Clarkson, of NHS Blood and Transplant, said:” Every donor is special and Jemima’s unique narrative shown in the remarkable difference a few words can realize. Hundreds of people are still croaking unnecessarily waiting for a transplant because too many families say no to organ donation.

” Please tell your family you want to donate, and if you are unsure, ask yourself; if you needed organ transplants would you abide one? If so, shouldn’t you be prepared to donate ?”
