The Moment Of Truth

24 November 10.35pm RTÉ One
Presenter Blathnaid Ni Chofaigh meets Tony Gavigan to talk to about his moment of truth. Tony's 11-year-old son Kyle was fatally injured in a car accident in 1996 near his home in Navan. Tony and his wife Adrienne had to make the agonising decision to switch off the life support and donate their son's organs. A few months later, a grief-stricken Tony was diagnosed with a life-threatening kidney disease. Within two years, Tony received a life-saving kidney transplant in the same operating theatre where his son had died.
