Anonymous Donor Heroes

November 21, 2020: I received a kidney that I had been waiting almost five years for. I had been on dialysis during those years. I got a call late at night that an anonymous kidney had been found as my match. I am close to my four year transplant anniversary, and my life was given back by the donor whose kidney I received. I think about him each and every day, and I am so grateful, beyond words, for his gift.

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.

For more information about corresponding with recipients, please call us at 615-564-3649.

We can only do it together
