Primrose's story

After receiving her kidney transplant, radio presenter Primrose has turned her attention to spreading the word about the need for more black organ donors.

Radio Presenter Primrose Granville was born with polycystic kidney disease, a largely hereditary condition that has also affected her mother and sister.  

Worryingly for Primrose, her mother was on dialysis for 13-and-a-half years and her sister spent nine years on dialysis before receiving transplants.

Their long wait was, in part, due to a lack of donors from the black community. 

In our community we don’t talk about organ donation. It’s taboo.

Fortunately, Primrose was able to receive a kidney transplant within months of being added to the transplant waiting list.

I’m thankful for my donor, I’m thankful for the person whose legacy is my life being enhanced and continued.
