Thirteen-year old Jemima dies, donates organs and saves eight lives

“Since her death her heart has gone to a five-year-old boy; a 14-year-old was given her lungs; and her liver was split between two boys, aged ten months and five.

Two people, aged 19 and 24, received her kidneys; a 40-year-old man was given her pancreas; and her small bowel has changed the life of a boy aged three-and-a-half.

Jemima – who wanted to become an author – also donated eye tissue which will restore the sight of two people.

Her proud parents, photographer Harvey, 43, and mum Sophy, 38, today paid tribute to their daughter, who passed away on March 14.”

Jemima Layzell, you’ll live with us for ever more.
