Vigil at sick girl's bedside.
Abbey Cape, of Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire, is on a life support machine after being struck down with a heart infection four weeks ago.
Doctors say she will die within two weeks unless a new heart is found.
But experts said fewer and fewer parents were allowing their children's organs to be donated after the scandals surrounding the retention of dead children's organs.
Abbey's mother Marianne Cape, aged 28, and stepdad Darren Jackson, aged 32, were today keeping a vigil by her bedside at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London
