Fiona is on the lung Fiona Ballantyne is on the waiting list for a lung transplant after being diagnosed with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension in 2019. She is hoping to take part in SENTINEL

The opportunity to potentially be able to see if your organ is rejecting just by looking at your arm is huge for those of us who are facing transplants. Not only because of the fact we could receive treatment earlier than if we didn’t have the patch but also for the peace of mind it would offer, being able to consult the skin patch whenever we feel under the weather.

“I’m proud to have applied to be a part of the SENTINEL trial – if it does go on to be successful, it would be a momentous moment for transplant recipients, that wouldn’t be possible without donors. I would strongly urge everybody to make their wishes around donation known to their significant others.
