Our Story
It   was   in   the   December   of   2015   that   Anna   and   her   family   were   walking   home from   a   school   Christmas   Concert,   when   her   husband   and   son   were   suddenly hit   by   a   car   right   before   her   eyes.   Stuart   her   husband   died   on   impact,   however, her   son   Fraser   was   eventually   taken   to   a   specialist   unit   at   a   Bristol   hospital. Tragically his injuries were too severe for him to survive. It   was   at   this   point   that   Anna   was   asked   the   question,   “Would   you   like   to   donate   your son’s   organs?”.   At   this   completely   life   shattering   time,   when   Anna   was   in   severe shock,   that   was   not   a   question   she   felt   emotionally   capable   to   answer.   She   needed support   more   than   ever,   however,   she   had   to   make   her   decision   quickly   and   fill   in the complicated paper work alone. In   a   time   of   such   utter   darkness,   Anna   created   light   by   making   the   brave   decision   to donate Frasers organs - which saved the lives of four critically ill people. Anna   received   no   support   from   the   health   service   after   leaving   the   hospital.   She   was left   to   go   home   and   continue   life,   looking   after   her   three   year   old   daughter   and somehow create a new normal for them both. Support   came   flooding   in   from   friends,   family   and   people   who   had   heard   about   this tragic   story   via   the   media.   Anna   then   realised   she   could   direct   her   grief   in   a   positive way,   by   starting   a   charity   to   support   people   affected   by   Organ   Donation   and   educate people on the fab gift of life. Just   one   week   after   losing   half   of   her   family   unit,   Anna   founded   the   Believe   Organ Donor Support Charity. See the Our Work  page to discover where the journey has taken Believe.
