Kidney Donor Portrait

Tom Higgs & Dr Roger Sutton pose for a portrait at the This Morning studios in central London on Friday 20, December 2013.

Tom Higgs underwent a kidney transplant at Great Ormond Street Hospital, with the organ provided by an altruistic living donor.

He met his donor, Roger Sutton, a 53-year-old GP from Portsmouth, after the pair exchanged letters.

They waived their right to anonymity to highlight the benefits of organ donation.

Tom has suffered from a rare type of kidney disease, atypical haemolytic uraemic syndrome, since the age of five.

It left the schoolboy, from Ruislip in Greater London, needing nightly dialysis.
