“Donation is important to our family because we are given the chance to save and/or change the life of someone else.”– Carla Jones
Through compassionate support, outreach and education to families and communities, our mission is to provide donated human tissue for the benefit of others.
RTI Donor Services is a not-for-profit, American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB)- accredited tissue recovery network dedicated to serving donor families and the donation community in perpetuating the circle of life. We help to enhance the lives of others by working with organ and tissue agencies to provide responsible stewardship of the gift of donation. In the communities that we serve, RTI Donor Services offers families the option of tissue donation, provides family aftercare services and offers community information and awareness.
“It is such a wonderful gift by a donor family, especially because they have just suffered the loss of a loved one, and to make the decision to help others by donating their loved one’s body to better the health of others is one of the most selfless acts. To think of others, especially at one of the most emotionally difficult events in their lives, is an incredibly generous act.”– Justin Fisher
“It’s good to make it possible for others to get well or live.”– Diane Mattes
“The love and laughter he brought to us will be missed, and his compassion and generosity will live on through his gift of donation.”– Coye Grimmett, donor father
“Deanna’s gift of tissue donation has brought me comfort and healing,” Catherine said. “I never expected that by saying ‘yes’ to tissue donation it would take this atrocious tragedy and give a ray of hope for others.”– Catherine Casey, donor mother
