remembering our

donor heroes

Chris Johnson



April 11, 2022

Chris & I were high school sweethearts that married 17 yrs after the fact. Sadly, I had to say goodbye 2 hours shy of our 11 yr anniversary. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about him. It’s not been easy. He was still young (46) & we had so much planned ahead of us. I pray that one day, I get the chance to meet the man that received his heart. Forever & Always

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
