Organ donation: Man's nine-year wait for heart transplant
Father-of-two Gareth Evans has needed a heart transplant for nine years.
The 45-year-old, from Stockport, has been waiting longer than anyone else in the UK on the current list of heart transplant patients.
His health is declining and, as Organ Donation Week begins, the NHS wants people to join the UK's donor register.
NHS Blood and Transplant figures show about 3,000 lifesaving transplants were missed in the last year, as families would not donate relatives' organs.
They also show 80% of people support organ donation, yet only 33% of people have told their family they want to donate.
