Liz, Steve and Simon Docker
In October 1994 Liz and Steve Docker's nine-year-old son, Simon, was knocked down crossing a road near their home.
He suffered a devastating head injury and despite the best efforts of everyone in the paediatric intensive care unit,
Simon died nine days later.
Liz and her husband had discussed the concept of organ donation in simple terms with their children so they were
confident it was what Simon would have wanted. Simon had described organ donation as the ultimate form of recycling!
Liz and her husband offered Simon's organs for donation. Liz said: "Personally, the decision was not difficult.
However, I do appreciate that other people might find it harder than we did. I would encourage them to think
in terms of trying to get at least a small positive outcome from a tragic situation."
