Requesting Updates on Recipients

At any time, family members who enabled the gift of donation may contact Donor Alliance for more information on how their loved one’s donated organs and tissues have and will be able to help others.

Organ Donation

After initial transplant outcome information is given, Donor Alliance is not provided with any further updates on recipients, and we do not have direct access to patient information. However, we are able to work with the transplant hospitals to obtain limited information on recipients upon each request from a donor’s family.

Tissue Donation

Information about donated tissues will only be sent to donor families upon their request. At any time, Donor Alliance may be contacted for more information on how a loved one has and will be able to help others through the generous act of donation. Please be aware that it can take between 6 months and 5 years for donated tissues to be transplanted and specific information to become available.

If you would like to request an update, please do not hesitate to contact the Aftercare Coordinator at:
