My Dear Donor Family,
I want to express my condolences for the loss of your loved one. My hope is that your receiving of this letter may help you through your grieving process.
I have been married for 36 years and we have 4 children, 5 grandchildren and one more due in April this year.
I have been fighting liver and kidney disease since 2004 when it was first diagnosed. In the last 3 years I have been especially sick and getting weaker. In the last year, my husband and I had resigned to the reality that the life I knew on earth would soon come to an end. Only through our faith in God and prayers from so many people did we believe and seek help for a successful treatment.
I had taken a fall and broke one leg is several places, … Read more »

Hello, my name is Kyle. I am the person who received your gracious gift of life. Through your kindness and generosity, I am able to live a normal life with my wife and family. I do not have the words to tell you how thankful we are and at the same time feel the sorrow your family has for your loss.
And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1:7-8
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 a transplant because I had stage 5 kidney failure. I had to do dialysis at home 7 days a week for 8 and a half hours a day.
Since the transplant, I have been able to enjoy more family gatherings and get out of the house more often because I am not so tired or feeling sick from the dialysis process. You and your loved one have made it possible for me to be able to see my grandchildren graduate in a few years and to be able to celebrate my 20 year wedding anniversary this year. … Read more »
Dear Donor Family,
I’m sorry for your loss, grief and heartache! Because of your loved one, I have the miracle of a new liver!!
Prior to my transplant, I always prayed for God to provide a new liver in a timely manner and also prayed for the person and family who would provide that liver. It was really difficult to pray this since I did not want to create a loss in order for me to live!! Words do not express what is forever in my heart because of your loved one’s choice to give life!
I did not realize how ill I was until after my transplant and I felt so alive!! I always just thought the way I felt was from getting old, now I don’t feel old, I have energy and good health! I am back at my job as a … Read more »
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 a transplant because I have Polycystic Kidney disease. It’s a hereditary disease in which cysts grow in and on the kidney eventually destroying its capability to clean toxins from my blood, causing renal failure. Prior to the transplant, I was on dialysis for eight years, MWF for four and a half hours.
The transplant is a miracle that I will always be grateful for, I thank the donor and his or her family every night. Words can’t really express the gratitude I have. I am lucky to be born and raised in Hawaii, I’m an Army veteran and I’m … Read more »
Dear Donor Family,
I am writing this letter because my wife (Recipient) and I would like to thank you for the organ donation from your loved one. We are very sorry for your loss, and we would like you to know that your gift has given her a chance to live a normal productive life.
My wife needed a liver transplant because of acute liver failure due to a bad allergic reaction to prescribed antibiotics. Her condition was critical until the gift of life was received from your loved one.
Since the transplant, my wife has been able to see and be with our daughter again. My wife is a Christmas baby. You and your loved one made it possible for her to experience the best Christmas and birthday, not only of her life but of all our lives.
For this, we are very … Read more »
I hope this can get to you by Christmas. I wish to share with you both my thanks, and my condolences. I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to lose a loved one. I’m very sorry. It’s only been about four months, so I’m still struggling to recuperate from the operation. Things are still a bit touch and go, but I’m in an infinitely better position now than I was before. I had liver cancer, and the prognosis was not good. Now I have a repreive! I can’t give enough thanks for that.
I would like to write to you again, at a later date, when I’ve fully recoperated. But for now, I only wish to give thanks, and wish you peace and love for the holidays.
Dear Donor family,
It is with utmost gratitude that I write this letter to you on my behalf and that of my family as an indicator of how much we appreciate what you did for our family. I felt very lucky and honored to have received your donation. I believe that there are no words that can describe the feeling you brought to me.
When my health deteriorated, I started consulting for medical assistance with less certainty of what was going to follow. When the doctors said that I needed a liver transplant, I felt like the world was coming to an end. To me, all hope was gone. You came and brought hope to me where none existed. I would like you to know that there is no single day that goes by without me thinking of this wonderful gift of life that you … Read more »
To the people that changed my life.
I am so sorry that it has taken me this long to show my appreciation for the gift you have given me.
I have started and changed this letter so many times.
What do you say to someone who has lost a loved one?
Well I guess all you can say is how deeply sorry you are for their loss.
But then when times are at the worst for the family knowing they will soon lose a loved one they do something so fantastic as to think of others. In their moment of sorrow they donate organs so that other people they don’t even know can live or have a better quality of life.
To me you are my hero. At a terrible moment in your life you thought of me and others and helped us live our … Read more »
