A transplant saved my life

Eoin

Eoin Crosbie received a liver transplant in 1996 and says the transplant saved his life.

Early one morning in April 1996, Eoin drove from the city of Nakornsawan in Thailand to Bangkok airport. He said he felt increasingly sick while waiting to check in his baggage and eventually vomited blood into a waste bin. Despite this, he boarded the plane, landed in Taipei and then finally made it to his hotel in Fukuoka in Southern Japan. He collapsed in the foyer. Eoin said he had lost four of his six litres of blood and would have died if he made it to his hotel room.
