The Great Britain Transplant Cricket Club
The GBTCC is unique in that all its players have received life changing, and very often life saving, organ transplants that have transformed their lives. The players include those who have spent years, up to 8 in one case, on thrice weekly dialysis to treat end-stage renal failure. Others have been quite literally at death’s door prior to receiving their life saving liver or heart transplants; sometimes after periods of chronic illness others as a result of acute conditions.
All of the GBTCC’s players love cricket and see the GBTCC as a vehicle by which they can publicise transplantation and especially the idea that a transplant can transform an individual’s life from a situation of having a serious and debilitating illness to one of full and active participation in life and the wider community. All the players feel that they owe a duty to their donors to celebrate their opportunity for a more normal life and to do what they can to enable others to benefit from organ transplantation.
