Organ Donor


December 25, 2017

My second son passed away unexpectedly at age 37 from asthma. He was an awesome son and father of Ellianna, age 10 at the time. He saved at least 4 lives. I met his heart recipient, Kim Palaferri Jenkin, and kidney recipient, Simon Kililli.

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
