Between 2008 and 2013 the Australian government spent 200 million dollars on organ donation reform and media campaigns to encourage families to discuss organ donation, and failed to meet the needs of the 1,500 to 1,600 people, at any one time, waiting to receive a transplant. 

Karen West is the founder of the first teen organ donor website in Australia www.livingvoice.com.au (based on the novel Living Voice), a joint project of TAFE NSW Western Sydney design students.

The website and book launched in June 2018.
