Oor hierdie boek:

After an extraordinary four-year battle,  Gabi Lowe lost her beautiful, talented  20-year old daughter, Jenna Lowe, to Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension, a rare degenerative lung disease, following a double lung transplant on the 8th of June 2015.
During her short but full life, Jenna and the Lowe family raised much-needed awareness around  this rare and devastating disease, highlighting the dire need for access to medication and organ donors locally. Although desperately ill, Jenna became the face for organ donation in South Africa through the hugely successful ”Get Me To 21” campaign in which she invited all South Africans to attend her 21st birthday celebration by clicking on a link to become an organ donor. Tragically Jenna died three months before reaching her milestone. Brilliantly written, Get Me To 21 will inspire us to believe that the ability to face even the darkest and most unimaginable, lives deep within us all.
