Anthony was full of life and always himself. He had a heart of gold. He always tried to make people laugh and his family meant everything to him. He always saw the good in others when nobody else could. He was always there for me. He is my hero, and like we always said to each other, I love you more to infinity and beyond until we meet again.
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.
