Check out our news page that has archived copies of BRIDGES, our newsletter for donor families, plus news updates and events of special interest to families of donors.
- Information for the Families of Donors
The sudden and tragic death of a loved one can be overwhelming. Families who donate organs and tissues not only change the lives of those who receive transplants but they often experience loss and grief differently.
- Bereavement Resources & Support Groups
The support groups and bereavement resources below are offered throughout our region. Before attending any of the programs, we encourage you to call contacts listed to confirm meeting times and locations.
- Helping Grieving Children
Children of all ages grieve the death of a loved one. Oftentimes family members assume that the child is doing fine because they play with their toys, laugh, and seem unfazed by death. Unfortunately, this is the furthest from the truth.
- Writing to Transplant Recipients
While organ and tissue donations are handled as anonymous gifts, families of donors may choose to write to the recipients of their loved one's organs and their family.
