Donor Family Aftercare

Donors and their families make generous decisions that save and heal the lives of recipients every single day and inspire their communities to donate life.

October

Steve saved Michael’s life through donation. Donor sister, Jennifer, and Michael hold his picture.

We thank you for your generosity; the gifts that you and your loved ones have given impact the lives of those who receive them in a tremendous way, and give hope to the thousands who are still waiting.

At Donor Network West, we aim to provide the highest level of service and support to our donor families. In the Aftercare program, we keep in touch with you for at least one year after the passing of your loved one. We offer information on the donation outcome, a biannual grief-focused newsletter, memory cards, the opportunity to make a quilt square, and a Donor Family Gathering honoring the donors and their families. Additionally, we facilitate correspondence between you and the recipients and provide referrals for grief support.

This can be a very difficult time, and we are here to assist you every step of the way.
