plea: Holly Pereira has made a YouTube video to encourage more people to sign the organ donor register. Footage from YouTube
Holly Pereira, 19, from Pound Green in Buxted, finds everyday tasks like walking very difficult. She has had cystic fibrosis since birth and urgently needs two new lungs.
Appealing for more people to sign the organ donor register, Miss Pereira created a three-minute video and has uploaded it to the internet.
In the video, filmed in black and white on a webcam, she says: "I get out of breath very easily. I had to leave my university course to focus on keeping as well as I can. I know I might only have 18 months to live and in that time my lungs will get worse. I know it will be difficult to find a donor as I'm very small and because of my blood type."
