We are enormously saddened to share news of the passing of our great friend and colleague Dr Chris Burns-Cox. Chris was one of the founding members of Give a Kidney and has remained a driving force and a trustee of the charity throughout its existence. His incomparable passion, enthusiasm and his tremendous commitment to raising awareness of non-directed kidney donation in the hope of meeting our ambition ‘no waiting for a transplant for want of a kidney’ has changed countless lives for the better. He is a great loss and will be hugely missed by us all. A more fitting tribute will follow soon.
