Heart & Kidney Donor/
November 15, 2022
My beautiful son gave his gift without hesitation because he believed that when he passed he wanted others to live if possible. His gifts were his heart and both kidneys. There are no words to express how much he means to me and his selflessness lives on to this day.
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.
