Thank you to our donor families. Thank you to our volunteers. Thank you to our partner hospitals. Thank you to everyone who helped make organ and tissue donation possible in 2013.
Last year, was a busy year for Gift of Hope. We worked with thousands of families across Illinois and northwest Indiana to coordinate their loved ones’ donations. These families are, without a doubt, the embodiment of Gift of Hope and our mission.
In 2013, we were able to help save nearly 1,000 lives through organ donation and impact countless lives through donated tissue. These are both all-time highs for Gift of Hope.
But, none of this would be possible without the selfless gifts of more than 1,500 families that said “Yes” to organ and tissue. We cannot say “thank you” enough times to those who gracefully gave life to others in their moments of deep sadness.
Thank you infinitely.
