Writing to your Donor Family

The decision to write to the family of your donor (donor family) is a very personal one. It may help you to know that donor families consistently express appreciation for the letters or cards that they receive from recipients and their families. Some transplant recipients choose to write to their donor family and others do not.

If you would like to write to the donor family, you may send a greeting card or a letter. The following suggested guidelines may assist you in deciding what types of information to include.
