donor heroes

Terence Derrick II

Organ Donor


September 15, 2022

Terence’s left kidney saved the life of a woman in her mid-sixties, his right kidney saved the life of a man in his late sixties. His liver saved the life of a woman in her early thirties.
Terence was a father of three precious children and to know that his organ donations saved three individuals is humbling.
Long Live Terence!!!!

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
