"I feel that I, too, am living again since Nicole’s death. Knowing Nicole saved so many lives through her gifts, I feel such peace and calmness in my heart."
“My son Tyler’s gifts will continue to give a better life to so many people; and knowing this has done so much for our family.”
“The decision to give a better quality of life to another was not something I had to think twice about. My husband Brad had decided long before to be a donor and had indicated it on his driver’s license. Besides that, my husband was one of the most generous people I’ve ever met—to let his organs go to waste when they could save someone else would have been yet another tragedy.”
“Thanks to my brother and living donor Harold, I can say I have had a healthy kidney with no rejection episodes for the past 13 consecutive years.”
“I am so very grateful for my transplant. I truly would not be alive today if I had not received this gift.”
“My family didn’t always have that future to look forward to—but now, we do. And it’s a big deal.”
On July 21st, Donor Alliance will host its signature event, the Donor Dash, a 5K run/walk to honor the lives of organ and tissue donors, celebrate the lives of organ and tissue recipients and recognize those who continue to wait for a lifesaving transplant.
Donor Alliance recorded another impactful year in 2012, helping save the lives of nearly 400 people through organ donation and transplantation. Read the full, year-end data report here.
