A heart transplant replaces the patient's heart with a donor heart . The donor heart is matched to the recipient by blood type and body size. As the heart transplant recipient, you must take medications to prevent his or her immune system from rejecting the new heart .

Her blood pressure and heart rate dropped dangerously and she was put in intensive care as well as being added to the organ donor waiting list. In intensive care she had to be put on a machine that works in place of the heart and lungs and pumps oxygenated blood around the body.

It read: "We don't normally post about our wonderful heart heroes who sadly pass away out of respect for each family's privacy, but following her efforts raising awareness of the impact of organ donation, and with permission from her family we are very sad to say that yesterday 11-year-old Aimee Brady passed away.

"Aimee was one of the bravest, funniest and sassiest girls we had the honour of knowing. She was a great friend to us here at CHT, starring in our 2015 awareness campaign, launching the Children's Heart Centre with Sir Rory Best earlier this summer and in September raising crucial awareness of the need for organ donation in a very powerful BBC interview which received one of the highest response rates and views that BBC NI have ever had.

"Always ready with a cheeky smile and joke, Aimee was a light in the lives of all who knew her and her impact has been felt further afield with well-wishers contacting her and her family from around the world.

"We will all miss her so much and send our deepest condolences to Valerie, Stephen, Taylor and their extended family on the loss of such an inspirational daughter, sister and heart hero.

"If you do one thing today in Aimee's memory please sign up to the organ donation register at www.organdonationni.info and talk to your family about your wishes. The gift of organ donation really can make all the difference."
