-I used to like swimming and cycling,

-and playing my guitar.

0:00:110:00:15

-I used to like painting.

0:00:150:00:17

-I wouldn't call myself a musician

-or an artist, but I enjoyed them.

0:00:170:00:21

-In 2006, it all came to an end.

0:00:220:00:24

-I could hardly walk or breathe.

0:00:250:00:27

-I couldn't do anything

-I'd been doing before.

0:00:280:00:31

-I had a cardiac arrest.

0:00:340:00:36

-There wasn't enough strength in

-the heart muscle to pump the blood.

0:00:360:00:42

-My heart stopped.

0:00:440:00:46

-So, in truth, I died.

0:00:460:00:49

-It turned out that I'd had

-the disease for about 25 years.

0:00:530:00:57

-But it got worse gradually.

0:00:570:01:00

-What went through my mind

-while all this was happening...

0:01:020:01:05

-..was that my quality of life

-at the time was very poor.

0:01:060:01:09

-Whatever they did to me

-didn't frighten me at all.

0:01:100:01:13

-I just thought that one

-of two things could happen here.

0:01:130:01:17

-I was either going to die

-or I was going to get better.

0:01:170:01:21

-I didn't want to live the way I'd

-lived for the previous four years.

0:01:210:01:25

-So, I was quite laid back

-about everything.

0:01:250:01:28

-I didn't care what they did,

-as long as they made me better.

0:01:280:01:32

-The question I've considered

-more than once...

0:01:370:01:40

-..is who was the person

-who gave me this heart.

0:01:400:01:43

-Who is their family?

-What's their story?

0:01:430:01:46

-Up to now,

-I've chosen not to know...

0:01:460:01:50

-..how old the person was...

0:01:500:01:53

-..how they died and whether

-they were male or female.

0:01:530:01:57

-I've chosen not to know,

-because once you know...

0:01:580:02:02

-..you can't get rid

-of that knowledge.

0:02:030:02:05

-I have big plans.

-I'm looking forward to the future.

0:02:100:02:13

-I look forward to waking up

-every morning. I'm full of energy.

0:02:130:02:17

-Of course, I'm restricted

-in what I can do at the moment...

0:02:170:02:23

-..but I'm confident

-about the way things are going.

0:02:230:02:27

-I can already do a lot more

-than I could six months ago.

0:02:270:02:32

-Of course, I've been very lucky

-to get a second chance.

0:02:360:02:40

-If someone asked me

-to donate my organs...

0:02:460:02:51

-..to a good cause or for research...

0:02:510:02:54

-..or to give to someone

-who needed them...

0:02:540:02:57

-..how could I refuse?
