donor heroes

Dakota “Cody” Johnson

Organ Donor


November 26, 2023

Cody was a beautiful soul! He passed away way too soon at the age of 32 . He made the decision to be an organ donor and was able to give 3 other people the chance to live. He left us with cherished memories, and knowing that a part of him will live on and help others gives comfort to so many who loved him! We miss him everyday, but I know he’s smiling down from heaven knowing what he was able to do for others.

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
