Heart and lung transplant – April 2003
Leonie had suffered from cystic fibrosis all of her life, which prevented her from attending school full time and had resulted in her being too tired to do anything else. Since her transplant, Leonie has been able to do everything and enjoys playing football, going horse riding and shopping with her friends. Leonie has now finished school and works in telesales but in September she will go to college to commence her training as a masseuse.
At camp, despite finding the skiing hard work, Leonie has seen it as a positive experience and has also enjoyed the dog sledging and meeting new people. Leonie believes that organs should not go to waste and go to people who need them.
