donor heroes

Shanon Pine

Organ Donor


December 9, 2023

Shanon unexpectedly ended up in the hospital because of a rare type of stroke we had the opportunity to choose to donate her organs, corneas & 2 heart valves on 12/9/23. Despite the lifelong struggles she had battling seizures & a disability she was a blessing that taught her family & many others what love is. Being able to have her legacy live on through organ & tissue donation gives us comfort after a very difficult unexpected situation.

Saying thank you

Many donor families find that corresponding with the transplant recipient or recipients can be a powerful experience. Donor families can take comfort in sharing stories and sending well wishes to those who live on because of their loved one.

Should you choose to connect, we're here to help. Letters and cards can be a tremendous gift to both the donor families and recipients. To protect everyone, we provide guidelines for communication. Names remain confidential unless both parties agree to share those with one another, and we provide a correspondence address. We are happy to share sample letters to help you get started.

For more information about corresponding with recipients, please call us at 505-843-7672.

We can only do it together
