Correspondence – for recipients

Writing to your donor family to thank them for your life-saving transplant is an important personal decision. Many donor families who have received correspondence from recipients find peace and comfort knowing their loved one’s generosity lives on.

In your letter, you can share how long you waited for your transplant and how that affected you and your family; how your transplant has improved your health and changed your life; what your transplant has given you the opportunity to do (celebrate another birthday, watch your child get married, become a parent or grandparent, etc.). You can include your occupation, hobbies and general family information, but exclude any identifying information because correspondence is anonymous and identities are kept confidential. Be sure to sign your first name only.

Place your letter in an unsealed envelope. On a separate piece of paper, please include your full name and your transplant date. Mail these items to:
