“My promise to you is that I will never waste
one moment of my life.”
-Melody Masha Pierson in
Letter to My Organ Donor’s Family

Your loved one has given the gift of life as well as hope for a future to people who are gravely ill and waiting for an organ transplant. These gifts are not taken lightly, and we are committed to honoring each donor and donor family we serve.  Aftercare support is provided by our Family Resource Program. We are here to support you and your family as needed or desired. We provide information about corresponding with recipients and websites that offer support for grieving families. Information of upcoming events to honor and remember donors can be found here.

Education and outreach opportunities for organ and tissue public outreach in Oregon and SW Washington can be found at Donate Life Northwest. Opportunities for Idaho outreach can be found at YesIdaho!.

Please feel free to contact us at (503) 494-5560 with any questions or concerns.

A letter is never ill-timed; it never interrupts. Instead it waits
for us to find the opportune minute, the quiet moment
to savor the message. There is an element of
timelessness about letter writing.
