Organ and tissue transplantation can have a huge impact in someone’s life. We, at RIODAC, are made up of transplant recipients, donor family members, living donors and those who understand the importance of organ and tissue donation, though they have no personal experience. Please take a moment to read our Stories of Hope, where some of our volunteers share their own unique stories.
Transplant recipients are some of the most grateful people you will ever meet. They celebrate their second chances every day, and are the reason organ and tissue donation is known as the Gift of Life.
Donor family members are exceptional human beings. They understand that while their loved ones are gone, another’s life may be saved. It is this understanding and generosity in the face of tragedy and grief that allows the many miracles brought about by transplantation.
