I was given this book by a nurse at my dialysis centre. Wow! I was blown away, I laughed and I cried. What a heart warming story, it has inspired me to buy the book for my friends and family, who knows I might just be lucky and get a donor. - A. Bello

Thank you for sharing your book with the British Renal Society, continue your excellent work in raising the profile of renal transplantation across all ethnic groups. -R. Fluck

Dela, you got the connection between a better quality of life for the people we love with kidney failure and the sacrifice it takes to make it happen spot on. M. Samuel

My sister who has kidney failure has been on dialysis for 7 years, I was too afraid to donate a kidney to her, but after reading how Dela’s daughters who are in the 20’s offered to become donors for their uncle, I realised I had no excuse. Thank you for such a remarkable story. – A Akinbola

Dela, your book tackles the real issues of being a kidney donor and talks openly about the challenges people with kidney failure face.- C Noble The book is absolutely brilliant, to the point, easy to read and not too technical. Anybody wishing to know all there is about being a living kidney donor has found the right book – O. Oluwole

I read your book during the Christmas holidays, absolutely brilliant! I could feel all the emotions you went through during your assessment. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about being a living kidney donor. – M Vutabwarova

I knew little about organ donation; however, I knew that it was something black people did not partake in. After reading “More Than a Match” my attitude towards it has changed. The bottom line is that people from the African- Caribbean community must help each other to succeed not only in music and sports but also in health. – R Kwame

Each chapter was a cliff hanger and it felt like reading a TV drama as the events in the family’s life unfolded. The love this family showed reduced me to tears and for Dela to still find the courage to share her story to help others find a possible donor was truly amazing. I hope her brother get the transplant he needs. –J. Lord
