Allison wins the ultimate accolade (From Western Telegraph)
Allison John, aged 30, has suffered from health problems since birth and has cystic fibrosis. She has survived four major transplants; in her early teens she had an 11 hour liver transplant and a heart and lung transplant. Her most recent operation came in 2006, when she was diagnosed with kidney failure and was donated one of her father's kidneys.
During the course of her most recent treatment Allison became an ambassador for the Kidney Wales Foundation. Among other things she addressed the House of Lords on presumed consent and helped raise £10,000 as part of the charity's Walk for Life.
