Donor family ceremony

There are many ways to get involved

You can honor your loved one’s legacy and keep their spirit alive. As a member of our donor family community, you share a valuable perspective that can help others heal and be inspired to register as organ donors.

Writing to your loved one’s transplant recipients

The decision to correspond with your loved one’s recipient(s) is a personal one. Some choose to share their loved one’s story, while others choose to learn more about the recipients. If you are considering writing to your loved one’s recipient(s), please check out our helpful guidelines for drafting and sending your correspondence.

The fact that Daelynn would be able to save the lives of three others, be a hero for them, gave us so much pride in her. We are so proud of our little hero, and the process of donating her organs was life-changing for us, the recipients, and our family.
