Dear donor family,
I am writing to thank you for the organ donation from your loved one. I am very sorry for your loss, and I want you to know that your gift has given me a chance to live a normal productive life.
I needed the transplant because I was very sick with liver cancer. Since the transplant I have been able to retire and travel to different states. You and your loved one made it possible for me to watch my son graduate from college in 2013, walk my daughter down the aisle at her wedding in 2013, and just this past May I was able to watch my daughter graduate from nursing school in Hawaii.
I’m so thankful for you and your loved one that I was able to have these experiences. Without you it wouldn’t have been possible. For this I am forever grateful to you and your loved one. My family and I will always remember your act of kindness and generosity. I will cherish my gift for the rest of my life!
