Fiona and Johnathan Edwards are a unique couple. They are both transplant recipients who met when Fiona was to explain to Jon on what to expect from his operation.
"We sort of got together for a coffee and became friends and that," she recalled. "We became soulmates." Fiona said she could not have imagined such a situation 10 years ago when a dialysis machine was needed to keep her alive.

Fiona said that her ordeal made her realize that it was important for people to donate organs so as to save innumerable lives.
