The decision to write to your donor’s family is a personal one. Some recipients choose to write to their donor’s family and some do not.
It may help to know donor family members consistently express appreciation for the letters or cards they receive from transplant recipients. Your letter can help families find closure, and they often find great comfort in knowing a little about the person their loved one was able to help.

Each letter or card is reviewed to ensure confidentiality before it is forwarded to the donor family. Some donor families may send a letter or card in response to your letter. Others may choose not to write to you at this time — this is their personal decision.
