remembering our

donor heroes

Sandra Tyler

Organ Donor


July 17, 2017

Every time I do one of these things for mom, my emotions go crazy. Mom loved people, animals and riding her horses. When we got the call that she had fallen off her horse and was brain dead, I knew mom was an organ donor. Knowing she has helped 7 people live to see their kids, wife, husband, sister or brother for another day warms my heart. Mom’s legacy will live on.

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
