  Country star Clint Black thanks first responders for Hurricane Harvey help in Houston Country star Clint Black has heaped praise on the first responders who are helping to save lives in his native Houston, Texas following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. The Great Flood singer reveals he'll be donating money and staging memorabilia auctions to help fund the recovery and relief efforts after the historic storm, but in the meantime he can only watch the news coverage and count his blessings. "What we worry about most right now are the lives, and there are gonna be some long term needs," he tells Entertainment Tonight. "I know a lot of us are going to be looking at ways to lend our voices, our music, our songs, auction guitars, cowboys hats, boots, whatever we can do to get people to reach into their pockets. I'll be making donations to the Salvation Army, myself." But he admits there's a ray of hope amid all the devastation caused by the hurricane, as people come together to help those in need. "Being a Houstonian, I want to give a shout-out to all of the first responders doing a great job (and) all the citizens who got out on their own accord and helped," Clint tells the news show. "I know that people came from as far away as Utah and just jumped in the water and started rescuing people. We got the Cajun Navy that came over from Louisiana so many states (are) sending their rescue workers. So many citizens (are) pitching in.

Her liver was split and transplanted into a further two people and both lungs were transplanted into one patient.

The eight different recipients included five children.

Jemima’s mum Sophy Layzell, 43, a drama tutor said the family had discussed organ donation a couple of weeks before Jemima’s unexpected death.

“The conversation was prompted by the death of someone we knew in a crash. They were on the register but their organs couldn’t be donated because of the circumstances of their death,” she explained.

“Jemima had never heard of organ donation before and found it a little bit unsettling but totally understood the importance of it.

“We found the decision to donate Jemima’s organs hard but we both felt it was right and we knew she was in favour of donation.”

Jemima Layzell© Provided by Huffington Post Jemima Layzell Sophy, who is married to Harvey Layzell, 49, the managing director of a building firm, continued: “We had no idea Jemima was the only person whose organs were transplanted into eight different people until NHS Blood and Transplant told us.

“Everyone wants their child to be special and unique and this among other things makes us very proud.

“Shortly after Jemima died, we watched a programme about children awaiting heart transplants and being fitted with Berlin Hearts in Great Ormond Street Hospital. It affirmed for us that saying ‘no’ would have been denying eight other people the chance for life, especially over Jemima’s heart, which Harvey had felt uncomfortable about donating at the time.

“We feel it’s very important for families to talk about organ donation. Every parent’s instinct is to say ‘no’, as we are programmed to protect our child. It’s only with prior knowledge of Jemima’s agreement that we were able to say ‘yes’.”

Sophy described her daughter as “clever, funny, compassionate and creative”.

“We feel sure she would be very proud of her legacy,” she added.

Sophy, Harvey, and Jemima’s 17-year-old sister Amelia now run The Jemima Layzell Trust, which helps young people with brain injuries and also promotes organ donation.

Sophy said: “Jemima’s motto, ‘Live Love Laugh’, runs strongly through her charity’s ethos.  As a donor family it’s incredible to think of the new branches Jemima’s tree of life has grown.”

NHS Blood and Transplant is sharing Jemima’s story to help inspire more people to tell their families they want to donate because a deadly shortage of donated organs is costing hundreds of lives every year.

Last year, 457 people died waiting for a transplant, including 14 children. There are currently 6,414 people on the transplant waiting list including 176 children.

Anthony Clarkson, NHS Blood and Transplant assistant director of organ donation and transplantation, said: “Every donor is special and Jemima’s unique story shows the extraordinary difference a few words can make.

“Hundreds of people are still dying unnecessarily waiting for a transplant because too many families say no to organ donation.

“Please tell your family you want to donate, and if you are unsure, ask yourself; if you needed a transplant would you accept one? If so, shouldn’t you be prepared to donate?”
