Angelita López Orozco

Organ Donor


July 20, 2022

Angelita López Orozco was born on February 14th 1960 in a beautiful and humble town called El Rodeo, Michoacán in Mexico. She was raised a loving and caring soul. She was married in 1987 to an equally kind man named Jose Alfonso Ramirez Zárate. When she arrived in the United States in 1996, she continued to work closely with children and expecting mothers. She was a mother of three girls. Rosario Ramirez, Reyna Ramirez and Citlally Ramirez. She also mothered many babies who to this day are her children. Angelita had a heart of gold and a soul as pure as pure can be. This woman was not only my mother but my best friend and the person I could not live without. To this day I think of her and know that with her donation she was able to help so many families just like ours. I am sad that she is gone but she truly lives on the way she always knew she would helping others.

Saying thank you

Many donor families find that corresponding with the transplant recipient or recipients can be a powerful experience. Donor families can take comfort in sharing stories and sending well wishes to those who live on because of their loved one.

Should you choose to connect, we're here to help. Letters and cards can be a tremendous gift to both the donor families and recipients. To protect everyone, we provide guidelines for communication. Names remain confidential unless both parties agree to share those with one another, and we provide a correspondence address. We are happy to share sample letters to help you get started.
