Anonymous Donor Heroes

Our family is SO grateful to our Donor Family. Thank you for your generous Gift of Life. 25 years ago, your family made the most powerful decision, and we have been and are blessed by our son’s life everyday. Our son is healthy, adventurous, curious, kind, sensitive, creative, compassionate, intelligent and loving. We thank you every day for his Gift of Life.

8/19/99 – you are forever in our hearts.

My life was saved by an unknown hero. I received the Gift of Life on August 19, 2019 in San Francisco, CA. My family and I will be forever grateful.

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.

We can only do it together
