Recipients of organ, eye and tissue donations benefit from connecting with fellow patients who share similar experiences. The organizations linked below are excellent sources of support for recipients and their families.
Like many transplant recipients, the time may come when you wish to write a letter to your donor’s family. You may want to express your gratitude for their loved one’s gift or let them know how you’re doing. A note or letter can bring great comfort and healing to those going through the grieving process.
If you are a transplant recipient and would like to correspond with your donor’s family, please contact your transplant center. They will provide guidelines and an address for your correspondence.
Your family’s donation story can inspire and comfort others. We hope you’ll share how donation has affected you and your family.
