Donor mother, Lupita LeBario, and her father, Miguel (r), take comfort knowing that Roman saved several lives through donation, including his heart recipient, Steve Bond (center).
The decision to write to the recipients of your loved one’s organs, eyes and tissues is personal. For some donor families, writing helps with the grieving process. Others have no desire to write at all.
Donor Network of Arizona supports the right for donor families and transplant recipients to engage in mutually acceptable forms of communication. Our role is to facilitate the communication you desire. There is no right or wrong way to approach this communication, and there is no timeline for your decision. The choice is up to you.
