Please grant Oliver Cameron's sister Keisha Rushton a temporary visa to allow her to donate her already matched kidney to save her brother's life

UK Visas and Immigrant are refusing entry of a matched kidney donor for British citizen Oliver Cameron. Without a transplant Mr Cameron, who suffered from near fatal renal failure in December 2012 could expect to lose 12 to 20 years of life if he remains on dialysis.
When your kidneys fail your two options are dialysis or a transplant. Dialysis is capable of about 10% of the work of a functioning kidney and because of its effects on the body can result in serious complications. Jamaican Keisha Rushton wants to give her brother the life changing donation of her kidney which will release him from the daily grind of renal dialysis.
Patients who receive a transplant typically live 12 to 20 years longer than dialysis patients. Keisha Rushton is a matched living donor for her brother and is desperate to save his life.
It is a brave decision for Ms Rushton to visit the UK to save the life of her brother, in addition to the typically 3 months time it takes for a kidney donor to recover assuming no complications, Keisha has a business, a fiancé, seven children and an elderly mother at home in Jamaica whom she needs to return to once this donation has been made.
This case is yet another example of the draconian and inhumane application of the immigration rules and I would like the Rt Hon Theresa May MP to grant a temporary visa to permit this operation and allow a return to health, quality of life and work for Oliver Cameron.
