Donor Family Aftercare

We also offer transplant recipients the opportunity to express their appreciation to donor families through our Thanks 2 You program. Families often find comfort in hearing from the recipients of their loved one's tissue. A simple thank you can be uplifting to the family and reassure them that they made a wonderful decision to help others in the midst of their grief. LifeNet Health welcomes the opportunity to facilitate anonymous letters of gratitude.
