Healing is a Unique, Personal Process

We are here for you, without question, any way you choose.

The Donor Family Services Department of LifeNet Health promotes healing and peace for organ and tissue donor families as they grieve the death of their loved one. Our website, however, is open to all who mourn and are coping with the death of a loved one. We hope the grief support and resources you find here are helpful in your journey. We are deeply humbled by those who have given the gift of life to others and are honored to help their loved ones move toward reconciling the loss in their life. From within this site you can create a memorial for a loved one, ask a grief counselor a question, visit a child’s place for remembering, find support groups and read helpful and comforting words.
