Many people in Britain today carry a kidney donor card, yet few probably have any idea how, where or why the practice originated. TIMBO, A STRUGGLE FOR SURVIVAL is the personal story that lies behind these cards.In September 1966, Elizabeth Ward suddenly discovered that her 13-year-old son Timbo had developed a severe kidney problem. It was a discovery that changed the lives not only of the Ward family but of thousands of kidney sufferers throughout Britain, and led to the founding of the British Kidney Patient Association in 1975.But for Elizabeth Ward, the constant deterioration of Timbo s health was the most painful way to learn about any disease. Together they fought against hospitals, failed transplants, a lack of public awareness, and the disease itself. This book is the story of that struggle. Fascinating reading on both human and ethical grounds GOOD HOUSEKEEPING A story that tugs the heart CHURCH TIMESA harrowing and heroic story ...an inspiring example'EMLYN WILLIAMS
