Iowa Donor Network’s Donor Family Care Program
At Iowa Donor Network, we understand that saying goodbye to a loved one is difficult and everyone’s grief journey is different. The role of our Donor Family Care program is to offer support and resources to meet the needs of each donor family member, regardless of their relationship to the donor or type of loss they have endured. Our Donor Family Companions offer a listening ear, facilitate correspondence between donor families and recipients, offer updates as to how a donor’s gift(s) impacted others, and provide information on available grief materials and support groups as well as notify families of up-coming donation related events.
Donor Family Care
"Our son Jacob was able to save and restore many lives through his donated organs and tissues. Since losing our son, we have met two of his recipients. Seeing firsthand what the gift of life has meant to both of them has been instrumental in helping us heal from the loss of our beloved son."
