Family make plea for heart donors

"The family of a 16-year-old Dublin, Ireland, student who is being kept alive on a mechanical heart machine at the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital have made a special plea for heart donors to save her life. Kiva Humphries from Deansgrange in south Dublin contracted an infection last February which seriously damaged her heart muscles. She is the only person in the country on a mechanical heart machine and after over 250 days doctors say time is running out for a life-saving heart transplant" - RTE News
