Justin was my hero who lived an adventurous short life. He taught me more than I could have ever imagined about living life to the fullest, taking the adventures and loving everyone.
Justin was born with a rare chromosome disorder but he never let it stop him. He loved dressing up in costumes as his favorite super heroes but little did he know he was my super hero.
His 17 years will never be enough for me but I have faith in God and I know I will see him again one 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.
When you register as an organ, eye and tissue donor, you leave a lasting legacy and bring hope to those waiting.
