Transplant Legacy Tree


Transplant patients are certainly familiar with the need to face life’s challenges with strength and courage. From that courage often springs the desire to help others.

  • Would you like to remember or honor a loved one who was a champion along their transplant journey?
  • Do you have a desire to reach out and help other patients because you’ve been where they are now?
  • Would you like to honor a living donor or donor family in a meaningful way?

The Transplant Legacy Tree is an opportunity to give back and do something more--raise hope and make a difference in the lives of others. For more information, please e-mail us at
