Warwick woman Kelly’s organ donations saved lives including those of baby and teenager

LEAMINGTON COURIER, UK


During her life fun-loving Kelly Ashton from Warwick worked to help others as a psychiatric nurse - and when she died unexpectedly she became a lifesaver once again.
Kelly, 34, who worked at St Michael’s Hospital, died of a cerebral aneurysm in November 2016.

Her mother, Ann White, allowed the hospital to donate some of Kelly’s organs to those in need and the result of this is :
  • A baby boy received a liver transplant.
  • A boy in his late teens received a liver transplant.
  • A lady in her 50s received a kidney after having waited for more than four years.
  • A man in his 20s received a kidney transplant after having waited a year.
  • A man in his 50s received a pancreas, small bowel, abdominal wall, colon and stomach transplants.
Ann also agreed to the donation of Kelly’s heart tissue, eye tissue, bone, tendons and femoral arteries which can be stored for a period of time before being matched and allocated to suitable recipients in need.
