About Recipients

There are several updates you may receive if your loved one was a donor. Read here to learn more about medical updates on recipients as well as information on the letter writing process.

Many donor families ask whether they can have contact with their loved one's recipients. Some wonder how their loved one's organ recipients are doing months and years after the transplant or wish they knew how many people were helped with their loved one's tissue, such as bone and skin.

If your loved one donated tissue, such as corneas, heart valves, veins, skin and/or bone, we can request a tissue update if it has been over a year since your loved one's donation.

If your loved one donated organs, such as kidneys, pancreas, liver, lungs or heart, we can request a medical update on the recipient and provide information on the letter writing process, should you wish to initiate contact.
