Tonight at 5.30pm and 7.30pm CBBC are showing a documentary called My Life, My Heart, which follows the story of Jack, now 13, while he waited for and eventually received a heart transplant.
Aimed at a young audience, the programme is a good way of introducing children to conversations around transplant and organ donation. If you watch it, let us know what you think!
