Update on Lauren’s letter to her donor.

We have been asked numerous times if we have heard from the donor family.  Well, to this date we haven’t.  We received a letter from UNOS stating that they received Lauren’s letter.  They said it was beautifully written and they sent it to the family.  Now it is up to the family if they wish to be known.

Lauren and I realize it is probably a very hard decision for them, and we understand it may take them awhile to want to reach out or not.If they don’t, we will respect their decision.

Take a second a listen to this song, when we listen to it, it is for a wonderful person who decided to be an organ donor that saved Lauren’s life.

  1. I’ve been told that 80-85% of the recipients that write their donor families do NOT hear back. But, I do have a friend that finally met her donor family 13 years AFTER transplant. So, keep writing and NEVER give up!


  2. Thank you, when we were in the hospital we met a couple of other heart transplant recipients and one of them received a letter stating the family did not want to be known.
