Will I Be Told Who Receives the Organ Donation

To protect the recipient’s and your confidentiality, names are not released as to those benefiting from your gift. However, you will be informed as to the general characteristics of the recipient and the outcome of the transplantation procedure. Even though some transplants do fail, it is important to remember that the memorial to your loved one is the act of giving and not in its success or failure. You may choose to write a letter to the recipients sharing your feelings, you can contact the Donor Family Advocate to obtain a brochure about how this is done.
