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.

"I had my first cornea transplant in 2005 and my second in 2019. I will live the rest of my life honoring both of my donors. I start each day with a grateful heart and always count my blessings."
