Her love lives on

Many of you must have read the touching story of Ms Carmen Ho, which was extensively covered by the media two days ago.

A tragic traffic accident took Carmen's life but her love lives on through organ donation. Her family's brave decision to allow her organs to be donated has given new life to six patients awaiting organ transplant and brought new hope to their families. It is especially noble for Carmen's family to make such a selfless decision at a time of such deep grief and loss.

The concept of organ donation needs to be better understood and more widely encouraged in Hong Kong and Carmen's legacy sets an example for all of us.
