Transplant campaigner's courage an inspiration to us all

Editor's Viewpoint

Tributes have been pouring in for Janet Coleman, the driving force behind the Northern Ireland Transplant Team, who has died.

Janet had to undergo three kidney transplants herself, but she remained undeterred.

She campaigned for more people to become organ donors and helped those waiting for a transplant. She also became the Great Britain and Northern Ireland Transplant Games swimming coach.

Such courage and vision inspires and humbles the rest of us. Her memory will live on.
