Celebrate Your Organ Anniversary

Transplant recipients are often looking for a way to share their gratitude for the gift of life they received. An organ transplant anniversary date is a good time to remind people about the difference that an organ donor made. Living kidney and liver donors may wish to celebrate their donation anniversary date to thank their support team and help others understand the importance of living donation.
