The UK is passing a new law making it an opt-out, rather than an opt-in system for organ donations. 

Kiwi organ donors we've spoken to say they want the same system here.

Daniel, a listener of Ryan Bridge's Drive show on Magic Talk, shared his own amazing story of a heart transplant.

He was on life support. It was a grim situation and he could have died, he explained to Magic Talk.

But now he is loving life and enjoying his family and new heart. He even keeps his old heart in the freezer.

Another listener, called Heidi, also has a new heart. The 39 year old said she can run everyday.

Listen to the full interviews above.
