For Healthcare & Funeral Professionals

Tissue donation is a gift of life – a gift that allows recipients to move without pain, to play with their children and grandchildren, and to participate in activities they thought were lost forever.

As an organization that participates in a donation program, you have the opportunity to offer more families the chance to give this special gift and make a difference in the lives of many.

“I healed so much faster than the autograft patients in therapy. I got my flexibility back faster and made progress much more quickly than people who used their own tissue in surgery.”

Although Kelli and her family were hurting the day they lost David, it helped knowing there was another family happy for their loved one to be receiving a donation. They made “a blessing out of a tragedy,” Kelli said.
